‘Ede Artisan Books’ are created using eco-friendly range of papers by Favini, made by replacing up to 15% of virgin tree pulp with the process residues of organic products. Crush paper includes by-products from citrus fruits, grapes, cherries, lavender, corn, olives, coffee, kiwi fruits, hazelnuts and almonds. These natural raw materials are saved from landfill and used to make these distinctive papers. In true Favini style, Crush is produced and designed with creativity and care for the environment – using an eco-friendly manufacturing process that’s far more advanced than standard recycling processes. Crush is FSC certified, GMO free, contains 40% post-consumer recycled waste and is produced with EKOenergy, resulting in a 20% reduction in carbon footprint.
