Recycled paper requires 64 percent less energy than making paper from virgin wood pulp, and can save many trees. ecosystem's paper components are made of 100% recycled material and can be recycled. The covers can also be recycled using a process that separates the latex from the paper product resulting in two different recycled material outputs.

The materials that make up an ecosystem book come from a variety of regions in the US and are purchased domestically in order to:

  • limit the ecological "footprint" of shipping and handling of the raw materials
  • support US manufacturers
  • ensure the post-consumer recycled paper is derived from 100% post-consumer waste materials

Our providers of raw materials are either certified by accredited ecological standards groups and/or provide certification of material authenticity.
