Staples 100% Recycled A4 Copy Paper is made from 100% recycled paper waste. The product is manufactured in Australia, has a clean and white appearance that is suitable for printing and copying needs, whilst meeting Australian Forestry Standard (AFS) and PEFC™ certification.

The paper is manufactured at the Australian Paper Maryvale Wastepaper Recycling Plant, and because of the recycling process 80,000 tonnes of waste paper are diverted from landfill annually. In addition to this up to 200,000 tonnes of CO2 are not injected into the environment, this is the equivalent of taking 80,000 cars off the road. Staples 100% Recycled Paper not only provides a broad range of environmental benefits but also greatly contributes to the Australian economy providing 967 jobs during the construction phase of local plants, with a further 240 ongoing opportunities.

These initiatives have seen Staples Australia recognised as an ABA100 Winner for Best Eco Product and Best New Product in the Australian Business Awards 2015.
