Western Pulp Recertifies Products as Sustainable
Western Pulp Products recently recertified its products through the Scientific Certification Systems for the third year in a row. WPP’s products have been verified for minimum recycled content. “This certification gives credence to the point that we want to be factual and stay away from any unsupported claims,” said WPP Marketing and Sales Manager Jim Lee. “Anytime we state that our products are made from recycled paper fiber, we want consumers to know that it’s backed with credible SCS certification.” For more information on Western Pulp’s productcs, visit www.westernpulp.com.
