Synthetic Papers & Recyclability
Yes, there are many waterproof synthetic papers out there. The vast majority of these are non recyclable and the other small percentage that claims to be recyclable are classified as Category 3 “PVC or Vinyl” and Category 7 “Other”.** Here is a link for a Greenpeace paper on PVC production that talks about this in more detail.
**Category 3 & 7 require special handling and stripping before they can be recycled.
What makes our synthetic paper so different? Our category 5 Synthetic Paper goes straight into the recycling bin with no extra need for special processing, handling, chemicals or stripping.
