Some producers use dye-back bleached paper, easily confused with natural fiber. In this process, brown dyes are added to bleached pulp. Dye-back bleached paper does not offer any of the additional sustainability benefits of natural paper.
Ahlstrom-Munksjö's trulyNatural® technology completely bypasses the bleaching, saving energy and creating less waste.
Advantages of Ahlstrom-Munksjö's trulyNatural® fibers:
- Appearance: Consumers prefer a natural, less processed package.
- Sustainability: True natural fiber provides significant environmental advantages in comparison to bleached fiber.
- Responsibility: Ahlstrom-Munksjö offers triple Chain-of-Custody certification on all its products under the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®), the Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®) and the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification™ (PEFC™).
