French paper & The Environment
We have a legacy of sustainability and are committed to continuing what we started almost 100 years ago.
In 1922 French Paper Company had the foresight to invest in hydro-powered generators. That decision has allowed French to conserve over 1,000,000 barrels of fossil fuels over nearly a century.
Our renewable energy comes from our on-site generators, not from buying energy credits.
We've avoided the release of 700,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions - which equates to 5,000,000 lbs of coal.
French has supplied the local community with surplus sustainable energy.
When French introduced Speckletone in 1955, we were the first to imagine that a recycled sheet could be beautiful - and we never looked back.
- Soy ink compatible
- Post-consumer waste
