Paper and the Environment

The paper industry depends on, and promotes, sustainable forest management to provide a reliable supply of wood fibre, the key raw material for its products. Well-managed forests bring multiple benefits for society, such as livelihoods, ecosystem services and biodiversity.
Ovendens are proud supporters of Love Paper, a global campaign that promotes the sustainable and attractive attributes of print, paper and paper packaging.

Love Paper campaign

Run by not-for-profit organisation, Two Sides, the campaign seeks to tell consumers around the world all the positive stories about paper, print and paper packaging from its environmental credentials to its role in the creative process.

Even in today’s digital world, paper remains unique in its ability to touch our lives. Paper is renewable, recyclable and the natural support of new ideas and creativity.
