Create an opportunity to “think when using”. Changed the name of the eco-friendly paper file series to “Econan” and opened the website The brand name of the paper file series is “eco-nan”, aiming to realize a society in which everyone who makes, buys, and uses is conscious of the environment, rather than just “plastic-free”.
Kosoku Offset Co., Ltd. (head office: Kita-ku, Osaka; representative: Shinichi Hashimoto; hereinafter Kosoku Offset) has decided to change the brand name of its paper clear file series to ” The website has been opened under the name eco-nan.
■Creating a system that encourages people to keep thinking about the environment, asking, “Why is it eco-friendly?” and “What is
eco-friendly?” Background of opening the “eco-nan” website
In recent years, high-speed offset has been receiving more inquiries about paper files from the perspective of eliminating plastic. the paper file
・You can choose transparent or non-transparent
・Can be shredded
・Recyclable as paper waste
While there are advantages such as
・Weak against water
・There is some anxiety about strength
・Easy to bend
There is also a disadvantage.
Instead of simply using paper because it is “environmentally friendly” or “because it will be plastic-free,” comparing plastic and paper files and having them use files that suit their purposes will lead to the realization of a sustainable society. Then I thought.
In order for those who inquire about printing and production to know in what ways they are eco-friendly, we have changed the name of the paper file series that we have been handling until now to “eco-nan”. I gave it a brand name.
Instead of “changing to eco-friendly materials because they are in fashion”, “Why is it eco-friendly?”
“Where is eco?”
I hope that I can help you create a system that knows resources, chooses and uses them.
■We are particular about material. Paper file that can be selected from 3 types In addition, we reexamined the materials of paper files, and developed only paper files of “FSC (R) certified paper” or “banana paper” as the Econan series.
Since there are many companies who want to purchase paper files from the perspective of being environmentally friendly, we would like to clarify the point of “what kind of material the paper file is made of and where it is made.” I’m here.
・FSC(R) certified paper
Paper made from wood shipped from properly managed forests. It is possible to print the “FSC mark”, which means that environmentally friendly materials are used.
The paper is made from banana stem fibers and is traded on a fair trade basis. In addition to environmental issues, we can also approach poverty and employment issues, and contribute to all 17 SDGs. You can choose from three types: the “hard to see through type” and “transparent type” that use FSC (R) certified paper, or the “banana paper type” made from banana stem fiber.
* Paper files of other papers are currently under consideration. At Kosoku Offset, we will continue to deepen our research so that we can continue to provide high-quality services for companies that want to choose and use them for a sustainable future.
