All Visstun Paper Products Now Built With 35% Recycled Paper
Last Updated On: 01/27/2020
Las Vegas based Visstun, in April 2019 announced its goal to make all paper products using 30 percent post-consumer recycled fiber by the end of the year. Not only did the company meet the 30 percent goal, it exceeded it.
As of Dec. 17, 2019, all Visstun paper cups, containers and paper lids were made with Sustana’s EnviroLife post-consumer recycled fiber. Instead of just 30 percent, Visstun achieved 35 percent post-consumer recycled content.
“We felt it was too important a step to only go half-way," said Joe Davis, national sales director for Visstun. "So, at no additional cost to our customers, we jumped in with both feet, upgrading all our material. The response has been awesome. With this first major step towards more sustainable products behind us, we’re continuing our research and testing of advanced eco-friendly materials. We’re looking for that perfect sustainable cup.”
Rather than offer the recycled cups as an option, Visstun replaced all the paper used for all cup types with recycled paper. This eco-friendly upgrade applies to all paper cup, container and lid products.Read More...
