Regular readers of Cleanzine might remember our report from the Pulire show in Verona last year, in which we publicised our admiration of Italian company Lucart and the way it operates.
Eco Natural Lucart spearheads the new generation of ecological paper, in as much as it is made by recycling the cellulose fibres found in beverage cartons (such as Tetrapaks), that would otherwise end up in a rubbish dump. Thanks to the company's clean and zero-waste technology, the production process is able to separate the layers making up drinks cartons and it does this without the use of any damaging substances whatsoever. The resulting products are very soft, strong and absorbent and are Ecolabel certified too.
We were impressed enough as it was, but having met up with the company's export sales assistant Omar Balducci and export manager Francesco Pasquini at the show yesterday we realised that this zero waste policy has gone one stage further. The contents of this box (itself made from recycled Tetrapaks) is filled with products made entirely from the other bits that can't be made into tissue products etc. such as pens, highlighters, a pen caddy and a ruler, as well as tissues and a notepad.
