Century Products: Environmental Commitment
The right tools can make all the difference in the world!
At Century Products, we are committed to providing products that will foster a more sustainable world. We continuously expand our portfolio of products manufactured with reclaimed materials or use renewable resources which have minimum impact on the environment. These offerings provide value to our customers and help us all create a cleaner world.
Most of our paper products are made from 100% recycled fibers, including many that have earned the prestigious Green Seal certification. Green Seal certified paper products are made from 100% recovered paper fiber and at least 45% post-consumer materials. They contain no added inks, dyes or fragrances.
Each and every parent roll that is produced in our North Carolina paper mill is made from 100% recycled paper fiber. Not a single tree is harvested to supply our mill. This recycled fiber contains approximately 60% post-consumer content, diverting thousands of tons of waste paper from the landfill each year.
Our paper manufacturing does not use solvents containing chlorine, benzene, cadium and cadium compounds, carbon tetrachloride, chloroform, chromium and chromium compounds,
dichloromethane, lead and lead compounds, mercury and mercury compounds, methylethylketone, nickel and nickel compounds, tetrachloroethylene, toluene, 1-trichloroeane, trichloroethylene, or xylene.
In addition, our paper mill uses about 90% less water than the industry average. That results in a savings of nearly 400,000,000 gallons of water each year.
