PROVENANCE AND ETHICS
The Rite in the Rain story began nearly a century ago in the forests of the Great Northwest. Entrepreneur, Jerry Darling, realised that local loggers needed a durable material that could be written on and survive adverse weather conditions. Jerry developed a special coating that created a unique moisture shield on the hand-dipped sheets of paper that he and his wife, Mary, processed at their home. From humble beginnings the first all-weather paper was born!
Recyclability: In spite of Rite in the Rain's durability, it is totally recyclable as standard paper, which is untrue of synthetic, or poly coated papers. Simply recycle Rite in the Rain as you do other white or printed papers.
Post-Consumer Recycled Materials: Rite In The Rain's unique “Polydura” cover and reference card substrate contains post-consumer recycled plastic bottles and is recyclable.
Manufacturing Process: The process involved in the manufacture of Rite in the Rain paper was designed to have ultra-low impact on the environment. The water-based coating process emits only steam and all mill off-cuts are recycled back into the paper-manufacturing stream. All printing plates and processing liquids are recycled. 100% of printing inks are soy based. The modern facility and equipment are designed to be energy efficient.
Recycled Fibre Content: For durability, Rite In The Rain paper is not made from recycled, re-pulped substrate as this creates a weaker paper not suitable for outdoor/field use. It is one of the rare instances where virgin fibre adds significantly to the end-product function, and the longevity of the paper becomes an environmental benefit. This all being said, the wood fibres utilised for Rite in the Rain are purchased from FSC Certified sources. By doing this it insures the product is manufactured with high environmental and social standards and practices.
