Paper can make your holidays more memorable and exciting!

Find various seasonal applications for some of Ariva’s top performing Sappi lines.

The holidays are right around the corner and we hope this article will provide you with some ideas as to how paper can make your holidays more memorable and exciting. Below you will find various seasonal applications for some of Ariva’s top performing Sappi lines.

Some of the examples displayed below feature Spectro C1S, a single-ply SBS board engineered for luxury packaging without the luxury packaging cost. With lower basis weights, thus an unmatched yield advantage to you, and sustainable manufacture, Spectro from Ariva delivers much more than just vibrant and dynamic images. What’s more, for the remainder of the year, Ariva will offer Spectro C1S as 100% Carbon Neutral at no extra cost.

Why should you choose the 100% Carbon Neutral option?
Ariva invests into projects that permanently reduce GHGs through offsets that are serialized, quantified, third-party verified and publicly listed. These include the Southern Quebec Afforestation Project and the Ontario Biodiversity Afforestation Project and have resulted in the plantation of hundreds and thousands of trees.

Why is Sappi the sustainable choice?
Sappi and Ariva are industry leaders in environmental strategy. Sappi has achieved the lowest carbon footprint of any major North American coated paper supplier due to their use of renewable energy. Over 70 percent of the total energy consumed by Sappi North American mills is derived from renewable sources.
Sappi mills utilize alternative fuels such as construction and demolition wood, tire-derived fuel and reclaimed waste oil. When you choose Spectro, you are supporting sustainable paper production.
