The mission of New Leaf Paper is to be the leading national source for environmentally responsible, economically sound paper. We supply paper with the greatest environmental benefit while meeting the business needs of our customers. Our goal is to inspire — through our success — a fundamental shift toward environmental responsibility in the paper industry.
New Leaf Paper leads the paper industry in the development and distribution of environmentally superior printing and office papers that compete aesthetically and economically with leading virgin-fiber products. New Leaf Paper offers a wide selection of coated, uncoated and office papers, many with 100% post-consumer recycled content and Forest Stewardship Council certification.
The paper industry is one of the most polluting and resource intensive industries in the world. It is responsible for over a third of worldwide timber harvest and over 40% of all landfill waste in the U.S. When New Leaf Paper was founded in 1998, the paper industry had demonstrated a high resistance to change. With low margins, a commoditized international market, and huge capital investment in the status quo, paper companies resisted efforts to integrate sustainable principles into their business practices. New Leaf Paper is working hard to change this!
