Our new paper product family, reHARVEST, includes envelope and uncoated offset grades, along with the first domestically produced coated paper using non-wood fiber. A recently developed process has advanced the pulping of agricultural waste which, historically in the U.S., was not considered a viable substitute for hardwood pulp. Fields that were either burned or tilled under can now be turned into raw material for making paper. The result is a high-quality sheet used for brochures, catalogs, magazines or any company looking for an alternative and highly-sustainable paper choice.

The reHARVEST natural kraft paper met typical bag strength tests and have been successfully converted and printed in trials. An additional benefit is that the bags offer a bright golden color with no fiber bleaching, a unique attribute of the straw fiber.
