  • Greetings & Stationery

Based out of London, 1environ makes handmade recycled stationery, specialising in handmade paper.

From the dawn of written history up until very recently, the 19th century, paper was only made by hand. Then the first machines to make paper were manufactured and handmade paper as a craft and art starting fading out. 

We now have rekindled this ancient tradition to make paper by hand using only recycled source materials. We now make paper from all of the following materials

 

  • Cotton Rags

  • Coffee Husk

  • Linen

  • Hemp

  • Mulberry

  • Corn Husk

  • Elephant Poo

  • Coconut Coir

  • Flax

  • Lemongrass

  • Banana

  • Rice Stubble

Using the above paper we make seeded paper which may sprout herbs, wildflowers or other plants. 

We then use all of the above paper to make stationery items such as paper bags and notebooks. We can also make custom stationery as per request.

We also make pencils out of recycled newspapers. 

Come visit our stand 6B34 to see and feel this unique handmade paper, made by artisans utilising ancient paper making techniques.

  • Sustainability Role in overall company's strategic plans
    1environ is built on being a sustainable, environment friendly company. Our company's goal is to make products which help protect the one and only environment in the entire universe that we know for sure carries life.
    Sustainability initiatives
    All our products are made from recycled and upcycled materials and are plastic and petrochemical free. Our flagship product is paper which is handmade from a range of upcycled materials.
    Pledges for the year
    A big goal of ours is to be carbon neutral, and a big step on the way is to power our factory with completely renewable energy. We still have some way to create the economic resources, but a main aim for the next year is to install solar panels at our plant based in India.
    Sustainable Products
    Handmade paper from upcycled materials
    The number of trees cut down in order to make paper is enormous. Nearly 4 billion trees worldwide are cut down yearly for paper, representing about 35 per cent of all harvested trees. The chemicals used in paper manufacture, including dyes, inks, bleach, and sizing, can also be harmful to the environment when they are released into water supplies and nearby land after use. Our paper is handmade and does not use any wood fibre and is made entirely from cotton rags & other upcycled materials. This helps in a small part to save forests the size of 182 tennis courts which are cut down EVERY MINUTE to supply wood just to make paper. Our paper is made from the following materials - Cotton Rags, Coffee Husk, Linen, Hemp, Mulberry, Corn Husk, Elephant Poo, Coconut Coir, Flax, Lemongrass, Banana, Rice Stubble
    Recycled newspaper pencils
    Our recycled pencils are made from recycled newspaper. The way our paper pencils are made, ensures the graphite lead and pencils are impossible to break during regular use. Since it is made of paper, our pencils are splinter free! An added benefit is that unlike regular pencils our pencils use no virgin wood. This helps save forests the size of 90 tennis courts cut down EVERY MINUTE to supply wood just to make pencils.
