We print all Boom materials on paper that supports forest conservation.
So any time you receive a mailer from us, you’ll know the paper it’s printed on supports sustainable forestry and social interests around the world.
For example, if you’ve ordered any of your Boom favorites lately, you likely received our multi-page brochure, printed on paper that supports the renewal of forests worldwide. The same goes for all our mailers, inserts, secondary packaging and postcards.
Furthermore, all secondary packaging we’ve introduced to the line this year is created with 100% renewable energy. Our printers even go a step further, printing with low-VOC vegetable-based inks and energy-efficient hydroelectricity.
A large percentage of Boom paper is made from post-consumer waste (aka recycled content).
In other words, most of the paper we use doesn’t even come from new trees. The small percentage that does comes from trees grown by skilled foresters in carefully, sustainably managed forests.
Let’s talk about why that’s important.
What is sustainable forestry?
In a sustainable forest, decision makers use the best possible silvicultural practices to ensure balance among wildlife, habitat, environmental and community. At the same time, they conserve and renew the forest for future generations.
As you might imagine, this is an art and a science.
Managing a sustainable forest has to be done in a very specific way. Otherwise, habitats are destroyed, soil is depleted and water quality can decrease. Overall, resources can be taken and not replaced for the future.
Right now, deforestation and forest degradation is the second leading cause of carbon pollution. That’s why forest maintenance is so important to BOOM!’s overall sustainability efforts.
Even more eco-friendly reasons to use this paper...
This was an easy decision for us. By sourcing paper that supports responsible forest management, we protect the forests for years to come.
As an extra safeguard: We also only use paper that’s certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). If you’re not familiar with the FSC, it’s a third-party non-profit organization that ensures all our paper is eco-friendly and supports the growth of responsible forest management worldwide.
Beyond that, we use vegetable-based ink for all mailers, brochures, secondary packaging and postcards because it’s more eco-friendly than petroleum-based ink.
Finally, we only use recyclable paper. So feel free to recycle any Boom mailers, postcards or brochures once you’re finished reading them.
Above all, we’re excited to use paper that promotes the long-term sustainability of our magnificent trees around the world.
We’ll have more Earth-friendly updates like this coming soon. In the meantime, what do you think of everything we’re doing to live in harmony with the planet?
