Made from wood fiber, Envi Card Stock is an environmentally preferable replacement for plastics and PVC materials often used in retail gift card.
Feb. 25, 2016 - Monadnock Paper Mills announced that it has received the Manufacturing Leadership 'Sustainability Leadership Award' for its Envi Card Stock product.
Now in their 12th year, the Manufacturing Leadership Awards honor manufacturing companies and individual manufacturing leaders that are shaping the future of global manufacturing. Winning projects are chosen by a panel of expert judges for results that enabled the manufacturers to set themselves apart from their competitors and that have delivered clear and compelling value, return on investment, and other tangible outcomes.
Made from wood fiber, Envi Card Stock is an environmentally preferable replacement for plastics and PVC materials often used in retail gift card. The product is durable and prints crisply using standard offset printing techniques.
Envi Card Stock is Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Certified and tested to be repulpable/recyclable, and can simply be tossed into the mixed bin after use.
"Consumers are increasingly seeking brands that demonstrate corporate social responsibility and are holding them accountable by demanding that concrete, meaningful actions be taken to implement sound environmental practices," said Paul Ciccone, vice president of research and development, Monadnock Paper Mills. "We are honored that Frost & Sullivan has recognized our efforts to empower retailers with a way to reduce their environmental impact without compromising performance or aesthetics through a greener gift card program."
Just like plastic gift cards, paper-based cards are flexible enough to bend and durable enough to withstand a washing machine cycle. In fact, Monadnock has had no reported failures of its more than 200 million paper gift cards on the market today.
