The announcement signals the expansion of Cocoon paper in Mumbai, Delhi and Bengaluru

Arjowiggins Graphic’s Cocoon range recycles office waste paper into premium quality, bright white recycled paper using an environmentally friendly chlorine-free process.

As demand for sustainable production and eco-friendly products continues to grow, Cocoon provides businesses with 100% recycled extra-white paper which delivers high quality print performance and print results, whilst helping to reduce their environmental footprint.

Cocoon products are manufactured from 100% Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified recycled de-inked pulp, produced at Arjowiggins Graphic’s Greenfield de-inking plant.

Papersmith will stock a range of grammages in three locations in India. Cocoon Offset, a 100% recycled uncoated paper will be stocked in 100, 120, 160, 200, 250 and 300 gsm, and Cocoon Silk will be stocked in 90, 115, 135, 170, 250 and 300 gsm.

Our new relationship with Papersmith is a step forward in our ambitions to become the leading global provider of recycled papers

A benefit of using Cocoon Silk and Cocoon Offset is that customers can receive their own personalised Environmental Benefit Statement, which outlines the environmental savings made with applications printed using the products.

For example, a 34-page A4 brochure printed on 17 gsm Cocoon Silk text pages and 300 gsm Cocoon Offset cover pages would save 141,455 litres of water, 8,310 Kwh of electricity and 3,857 kg of landfill.

Ian Braithwaite, overseas sales manager at Arjowiggins Graphic says: “Our new relationship with Papersmith is a step forward in our ambitions to become the leading global provider of recycled papers. We’re confident that our Cocoon product will be perfectly supported by the local service and expertise of the Papersmith team, and look forward to the opportunities our partnership will bring as we enter new markets.”
