Monadnock introduces the Kona® portfolio of packaging substrates that is made with non-wood fiber from used burlap bags diverted from the landfill.
Monadnock entered an exclusive licensing agreement with Arch Paper LLC and Whiting Paper Company for the production of a range of Kona paper and board products. Under a patented process, Monadnock is incorporating reclaimed burlap coffee bean bags into a variety of print and packaging substrates for the retail and hospitality markets.
Monadnock’s Kona line includes stocks for hang tags, price tickets, folding boxes and wet-strength labels. They are all Forest Stewardship Council Certified and are manufactured carbon-neutral using Green-e certified renewable electricity.
“We have expanded the Envi Portfolio® of products through our partnership with Whiting and Arch,” said Richard Verney, Chairman and CEO of Monadnock. “As consumers become more eco-conscious with a desire to divert packaging materials from the waste stream, the timing is perfect for the addition of Kona to the Envi line.”
Monadnock Paper Mills provides and custom engineers a diverse range of products including technical/specialty papers, and premium printing and packaging papers for leading brands worldwide.
