The Green Bit
Oxford are dedicated to providing environmentally friendly products for the benefit of future generations. They pride themselves on sourcing raw materials responsibly and continuously strive to improve the environmental credentials of their products. With that in mind, Oxford are pleased to announce all their exercise books manufactured from April 2009 are accredited with the Paper by Nature eco-label.
Paper by Nature is a unique international eco-label for converted paper products that guarantees eco-responsibility from raw materials all the way through to the manufacturing of the finished product. The Paper by Nature Association was initiated by key players throughout the paper and paper converting industry. The label is audited by a third party to ensure its integrity. The main requirements that must be met in order to be awarded with the Paper by Nature eco-label are:
- Reducing VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds e.g. alcohol emissions) which contribute to the greenhouse effect and can be harmful to human health.
- Reduce or prevent risks to the environment and to human health related to the use of harmful substances.
- Use of paper and paperboard substrate with a low environmental impact.
Because we are all responsible for the preservation of our planet, Oxford has undertaken to constantly strive to limit the impact their products have on the environment and inform their customers about the measures they are taking to achieve this. This could be from eco responsible product design, the selection of raw materials, right through to the manufacturing of the finished products.
