First World

First World will convert the following paper products into usability products: Office paper, copy paper, construction paper, newspaper, cardboard, mail/junk mail, envelopes, paper bags, cereal and cookie boxes, frozen food boxes, juice boxes, and milk and juice cartons, other paper products and cardboard.

Every year approximately 150,000 tons of paper and 4 million trees are used in the production of the greeting card industry alone. First World's goal is to help minimize the amount of paper being wasted and save millions of trees.

First World's jute material tote bags and jute paper craft cards are made of 100% organic cotton, and paper products are made from 100% post-consumer recycled paper. As a practice First World designs products that minimize waste, where processing emits 25-50% less greenhouse gasses during manufacturing than paper made with chlorine bleach. All of its printing is done with non-toxic vegetable-based ink. First World believes in the quadruple bottom line: people, our planet, profit, and social environmental justice.
