James Cropper provides 100% recycled paper for premium packs

The Rydal Packaging Collection's recycled content comes from used coffee cups

UK-based prestige paper company James Cropper has launched a new collection of papers for premium packaging which includes a 100% post-consumer waste recycled fibre option.

In addition to this 100% post-consumer waste recycled variant, The Rydal Packaging Collection also includes a 40% post-consumer waste recycled option, as well as one with 100% fresh fibre from responsible forestry sources.

The recycled material used in the collection includes James Cropper’s CupCycling fibre, sourced from used coffee cups.

Engineered to provide a natural and tactile feel, the collection is said to be suitable for folding boxes, shopping bags and box covering applications, and ensures outstanding print performance and converting characteristics.

The collection includes three shades of white and three shades of black, with bespoke colours and textures available via the company’s Tailor Made service.

For antimicrobial protection, James Cropper’s PaperGard silver ion technology can be included for all Rydal packaging options.

The name Rydal comes from a small village in the Lake District, close to where the company is located, which is best known as the home of Romantic poet William Wordsworth.
