Epson Australia is the first Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) in Australia to use Planet Ark’s 100 percent recycled paper for its own printing. Planet Ark Paper is 100 percent recycled, Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified, carbon neutral and Australian made.
Epson Australia human resources and environment manager Garry Pearce says, “One of the issues in the past with recycled paper manufactured overseas has been the amount of paper dust generated from the paper as it passes through your printer. We did a lot of testing before deciding to go with the Planet Ark paper and our tests found virtually no paper dust.”
The Planet Ark Environmental Foundation is an Australian not-for-profit organisation with a vision of a world where people live in balance with nature. Established in 1992, Planet Ark is one of Australia’s leading environmental behaviour change organisations with a focus on working collaboratively and positively.
Pearce continued, “As a printer manufacturer with an extremely strong emphasis on being as kind to the environment as possible, it is very important to Epson that people get the most out of their Epson products and can still use recycled paper thus contributing to a good environmental outcome. From our viewpoint using Planet Ark paper does all of the above.”
Much like Epson, Planet Ark achieves its goals without compromising on quality to get the best environmental office paper available.
Pearce concludes, “With Planet Ark you can get bright white copy paper that’s 100 percent recycled, Australian made, carbon neutral and made with local FSC certified material. At Epson, we know that planning for the future requires a strong commitment to the environment. That is why we strive to create innovative products that are reliable, recyclable and energy efficient. Better products that use fewer resources help ensure a better future for us all.”
