|Environmental photo paper sales raises charitable donation
Howard Smith Paper Office & Retail, part of the Howard Smith Paper Group, has announced that following the successful launch of its environmentally friendly photographic papers, it has now made its latest and second quarterly charitable contribution to The World Land Trust charity of £2,187.50.
The Environmental Photo Paper range was launched in October last year, as part of Howard Smith Paper Group's on-going commitment to the environment. After extensive preliminary research into possible charitable partners, HSP Office and Retail formed an alliance with UK-based international charity The World Land Trust, whose patron is Sir David Attenborough.
For every pack sold the company is donating 35p to The World Land Trust, who support local partners to buy and protect ecologically important habitats around the world.
This second quarterly donation was from sales of the paper products in WH Smith's. The first donation made earlier this year was for £2,432.50, achieved from sales in The Dixon Stores Group (DSG).
In addition The World Land Trust has endorsed the products as carbon-balanced, which ensures carbon emissions from the manufacture and distribution of the papers are completely offset through forest restoration and protection schemes. The Photo Paper range is also Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified, assuring customers that the pulp originates from forest reserves managed to the highest social and environmental standards.
