A recyclable product with a positive impact.

The paper we use is sourced from sustainable forests in Finland, is FSC accredited and adheres to the some of the tightest environmental standards in the world. For paper production trees are an essential raw material, and one that benefits the planet. Trees capture carbon, produce oxygen, and are vitally important for biodiversity. The European paper industry is a huge contributor to the growth in the number of trees we have to absorb C02. In fact between 2005 and 2020 European forests increased by an area larger than Switzerland.

What happens next...

74% of all paper in Europe is recycled, pretty impressive when you consider how many printed items are kept for long periods of time (books), archived or destroyed (tissue and hygiene papers). Paper can be recycled up to 8 times and then has uses in agriculture, horticulture and biomass energy creation - a great circular story.

More notable for being the 16th president, Abraham Lincoln was also a lawyer. Lincoln became an authorized lawyer in 1836 when he took the bar examination in Illinois. Lincoln practiced law with John T. Stuart and the two owned a law firm “Stuart and Lincoln”. Their partnership came to an end after Stuart was elected as a U.S. Representative.
