Sustainability

At Elke B we believe that every little bit counts.  We believe in making everyday choices that benefit the environment, our neighbors and the future.  We believe in supporting locally owned businesses and agriculture.

  • Our products are made in the USA.
  • Our paper is 100% recycled, made from 100% post-consumer waste.

Isn't just being 100% recycled enough? Why is it important that Elke B’s paper is made from 100% post-consumer waste?

Post-consumer indicates the amount of waste paper collected from consumers and reprocessed. The higher percentage the better. By buying paper 100% post-consumer content, we are sending a message to manufacturers that will encourage the reclamation and use of more recycled materials. Paper that is labeled 100% recycled can still have a lot of pre-consumer waste in it - so always ensure you are purchasing recycled paper made from post-consumer waste.

Did you know?... Each 20 cases (1 ton) of recycled paper saves 17 trees, 390 gallons of oil, 7000 gallons of water, and 4100 kwh of energy. It also eliminates 60 pounds of air-polluting emissions and saves 8 cubic feet of landfill space.
