210gsm coffee A4 card is mottled amber on one side and speckled off-white on the reverse, made from 100% recycled material, with 25% minimum waste collected from coffee plantations in El Savador and Costa Rica, and is Process Chlorine Free (PCF) - which means that no additional chlorine-based bleaches are used in the recycling process. This card gives an extra income to commodity farmers in the global South, and reduces river pollution from dumped agro-industrial waste fibres (which amounts annually to 230,000 tonnes in Costa Rica alone). The fibre is shipped to the UK as packing material for bananas so it is also a transport by-product. The card itself is manufactured in Hemel Hempstead, using the heritage steam-driven 'Fourdrinier' machine at Frogmore Mill: the world's first mechanised paper-making machine dating back to 1895, and still in use today. Sold in packs of 10 sheets.
