Crush! The Epic Journey of Agricultural Waste to Sustainable Paper!

In a world increasingly concerned with environmental impact, we are constantly seeking sustainable and eco-friendly products to make a difference. One such discovery that aligns perfectly with our mission is Crush, a remarkable line of papers by Favini.

Crush Grape: A Sustainable Revelation – Italy, renowned for its wine production, generates significant grape processing by-products. Crush Grape, a product born from the creative minds at Favini, takes these residues and transforms them into a valuable alternative raw material for paper production. The grape seeds and de-alcoholized marc are reimagined into Crush Grape paper, saving 15% virgin fibre and adhering to the principles of the circular economy. This ecological paper finds its purpose in luxury packaging, labels, invitations, and more. Imagine a wine bottle adorned with a label made from grape residues – a perfect synergy of sustainability and style.

Crush Kiwi: From Orchard to Eco-friendly Paper- Italy’s status as a leading kiwi producer brings forth another opportunity for sustainability. Crush Kiwi paper ingeniously reuses micronized kiwi residues, creating a recyclable material with seven potential life cycles within the paper production cycle. This eco-friendly solution helps reduce waste and minimise environmental impact.

Crush Citrus: Turning Waste into High-Quality Paper – Citrus fruit processing generates massive waste, including “depectinized mash.” Favini steps in to salvage this underutilised material, creatively transforming it into Crush Citrus paper. This innovation not only reduces landfill waste but also provides a prime raw material for eco-sustainable paper production.

Crush exemplifies how natural agricultural by-products can be harnessed to create high-quality, eco-friendly papers while adhering to ethical supply chains and circular economy principles. Crush represents a harmonious blend of innovation, sustainability, and style, paving the way for a greener future in the paper industry.

The Crush range also includes Corn, Cocoa and Olives arriving late September in Australia. What sets Crush papers range apart is its innovative use of natural agricultural by-products. These papers are crafted by upcycling 15% agro-industrial by-products, coupled with 40% post-consumer recycled paper fibre. This ingenious blend not only reduces waste but also minimises the demand for virgin resources, making it a win-win for both the environment and the circular economy.

Environmental impact is a critical concern in today’s world, and Crush addresses it head-on. Each sheet is produced with meticulous attention to emissions, which are not only measured but also completely offset. Moreover, the production process relies on renewable energy sources, with Favini taking pride in producing its own sustainable energy.

Crush is more than just paper; it is a harmonious blend between innovation, sustainability, and style. By embracing eco-innovative raw materials, offsetting emissions, and championing renewable energy, Crush leads the way towards a more environmentally conscious paper industry, setting an inspiring example for others to follow.
