Hollis, New Hampshire — It’s no longer necessary to choose between style and the environment when celebrating the holidays. Paporganics recently announced its Holiday Collection of greeting cards, wrapping paper, coordinating gift cards and ribbon made from hemp and recycled fibers. The collection is not only elegant and contemporary by design; it’s 100 percent environmentally friendly.

According to Paporganics’ owner and founder Camille Campbell, consumers purchase a staggering $2.7 billion of gift wrap annually. That’s big business and a big potential source of waste. She sees her products as a tremendous opportunity to close the recycling loop without compromising style and quality‚ concerns consumers often face when choosing environmentally sustainable products.

“Paporganics was born out of my frustration in finding attractive eco-friendly wrapping paper,” said Campbell. “If you do a web search on ‘recycled wrapping paper,’ most of the suggestions include wrapping gifts in used grocery bags or the comics. Who really wants to wrap a nice gift in old newspapers?”

The tree-free paper for their signature Hemp Wrap collection mixes chlorine-free agricultural resources (hemp and flax straw) and post-consumer waste fibers, promoting the use of non-wood fibers and supporting the market for recycled paper. “The hemp-flax content adds strength to the recycled fibers, creating a high-quality paper not often seen in gift wrapping,” said Campbell.

All of Paporganics products are made from natural fibers or recycled materials that can be re-recycled or turned into compost after use-even the packaging. “We use 100 percent biodegradable cellophane instead of poly wrap,” said Campbell. “We want to be able to throw the whole thing, packaging and all, into the garden composter and be OK with it.”

The company uses three papers exclusively to create their cards and gift wrap: a handmade organic cotton paper, a hemp-flax-recycled blend and a recycled paper made from 100 percent post consumer waste. All of the papers are processed without the use of chlorine and printed with 100 percent vegetable inks. To ensure high quality products made with fair labor practices, Paporganics utilizes only American producers.

In addition to the Holiday Collection, Paporganics offers an exceptional selection of distinctive all-occasion Stationery, Hemp Wrap and coordinating Gift Enclosure Cards, Gift Tissue and Natural Ribbon‚ all featuring garden-inspired fruits, vegetables, herbs, animals and floral designs.

Paporganics is available for wholesale and retail purchase at select natural product retailers across the U.S. and through their online store at www.paporganics.com.
