Boise ASPEN awarded Green Seal certification for sustainable leadership

Published 08 January 2018

Boise Paper, a division of Packaging Corporation of America, announced that its ASPEN line of multi-use recycled copy papers has earned Green Seal certification under its GS-7 Printing and Writing Paper Standard.

Green Seal’s thorough review and on-site audit has verified that ASPEN recycled papers conserve natural resources and protect human and environmental health while delivering the performance customers expect.

Specifically, ASPEN recycled papers contain a significant percentage of post-consumer materials, are processed without chlorine, and contain minimal heavy metals.

Formulated for exceptional run-ability in all home, office, and high-speed print equipment, ASPEN multi-use recycled copy papers feature the same hardworking characteristics and brightness as non-recycled sheets. They are performance certified by the Buyer’s Laboratory, Inc., and 99.99% Jam-Free® guaranteed.

ASPEN multi-use recycled copy paper is manufactured with 30%, 50%, or 100% post-consumer recycled content, which makes it easy to find the right paper to meet your environmental sustainability goals.

Boise Paper is a division of Packaging Corporation of America, headquartered in Lake Forest, IL. Boise Paper manufactures a full line of quality papers including imaging papers for the office and home, printing and converting papers, and papers used in packaging, such as label and release papers.

Green Seal®, a nonprofit organization founded in 1989, is the nation's premier ecolabel, symbolizing transparency, integrity, and environmental leadership. Its flagship program develops life-cycle-based environmental standards, and certifies products and services that meet these standards.
