The Nova® ranges of virgin paper, industrial grade, as well as single and double ply toilet tissue are produced from the most environmentally responsible and sustainable sources. We use the Sappi Triple Green range of high quality coated fine paper and tissue wadding products.
There are three ‘pillars’ in Sappi’s Triple Green process, namely:
1. Sugar cane fibre is the primary source of pulp used, making up 60% of the pulp and is all sourced within the immediate vicinity of the Stanger Mill in and around KwaZulu Natal.
2. The bleaching process is elemental chlorine free.
3. The wood fibre used in the manufacturing process is obtained from sustainable and internationally certified afforestation, all stamped by the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council).
All papers bearing the Triple Green logo are produced at Sappi’s Stanger Mill in South Africa.
The pulp used is a by-product of sugar production, making it a recycled raw material, together with being manufactured without chlorine in the bleaching process is what makes Sappi paper eco-friendly.
Sappi also verifies all incoming fibre to ensure that it has been produced in a renewable tree plantation and not from ancient indigenous or rain forests.
In terms of waste management, we are actively engaged in recycling our waste on a mass scale through a business partnership with Mondi Mpact.
