    SUSTAINABILITY

     

    We believe in working hard to use only 100% recycled and recyclable materials. Our focus is to continue limiting our environmental impact by reducing, reusing and recycling.
    As a Papercut customer, we ask that you please recycle any left over paper scraps to keep our earth clean, green and beautiful.
    Obviously we’re not perfect, but as we all know, there is no Planet B. So, as manufacturers we are committed to doing the best we can to be a more eco responsible business everyday. It’s not only cool to care about our environment, it’s the right thing for everyones future. Sustainability is not the work of one, but the work of many.

    Everything that happens at Papercut, happens right here in our New Zealand based studio. From design, sampling, shooting, production, manufacturing and dispatch. Keeping things on home soil is really important to us.
