Banana fibre is a 230,000 ton per year by-product of the Costa Rican banana harvest and poses an ecological threat to the region. This fibre is processed by Earth College in Costa Rica and converted into paper and stationery products by TM without the use of harmful chemicals. A percentage of each sale goes towards a scholarship fund to support young leaders from Latin America who study sustainable agricultural development at Earth College.
The Coffee PaperTM is made with actual brewed coffee and coffee skins. The rich marbelized coffee color is the coffee stains over the white recycled paper. We add the coffee skins to attain a fiberous texture that is responsive to touch. The coffee utilized is the left-over by-product of the coffee plantations. The coffee fiber that we use in our paper comes from the mountains of El Salvador in Central America. Both the agricultural by-product of the coffee plantations and the post consumer paper create serious solid waste problems throughout the Americas. Earth College are committed to the ideal of environmental and sustainable development. The Coffee PaperTM and all its resulting products are the fruits of these efforts.
