Our GREEN TEAM Offers Your School
Quality Products with Recycled Content,
Produced in an Earth-Friendly Environment
In our continuing efforts to help protect the environment, the majority of our products contain recycled material. We use the most durable materials available containing the highest recycled content.
Four Point Products continues to work with our suppliers to provide your bookstore with quality products that contain recycled material, at competitive prices. The recycled symbol and amount of recycled content are printed on our products, when applicable, so that students will know that the products contain recycled material.
The products in our GREEN TEAM line-up:
The vinyl used in most of our vinyl products contains a minimum of 10% recycled material. The board used in the heat-sealed vinyl products is made from 100% recycled paperboard. This same material is used in our new Paperboard Binders. The ring mechanisms in our binders contain up to 20% recycled material.
Our polyethylene and polypropylene products contain a minimum of 20% recycled material. The Natural poly in our new Poly Print™ designs contains 100% post-consumer recycled polyethylene.
All of our pressboard products contain at least 60% recycled fiber with 30% post-consumer waste.
Our Linen Pocket Folders contain 30% post-consumer recycled paper fiber.
Other GREEN TEAM Recycling Efforts
Our company is a member of the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Green Power Partnership. Renewable resources account for a portion of our energy needs.
Through our internal recycling program we recycle over 95% of the scrap material from the manufacturing process. We also recycle corrugated cartons, office paper, beverage cans and plastic bottles. These materials can be used to make new products in the future, instead of ending up in a landfill.
Through our Environmentally Bound™ program, we recycle vinyl binders with metal rings that are returned to us. We reuse or recycle the various components of the binders. Since the program began, over 200,000 pounds of loose-leaf binders have been diverted from our nation’s landfills through Environmentally Bound™. Ask your Four Point Products sales representative for more information about this worthwhile program.
