BENNINGTON, N.H., September 22, 2020 -- Monadnock Paper Mills, Inc., the oldest continuously operating paper mill in the United States, is pleased to announce the expansion of its alternative fiber offerings with Monadnock Hemp Envi™ Performance Board.

Monadnock developed the tree-free bright white premium board with a continued focus on both performance and sustainability. Recyclable Hemp Envi Performance Board is crafted in the United States, Forest Stewardship Council Certified (FSC® C018866), and composed of 30 percent hemp fiber and 70 percent post-consumer waste (PCW) recycled fiber.

“Hemp is an exceptionally strong agricultural fiber that has been used in papermaking for centuries, so who better than our 200-year old company to reimagine its use for the needs of 21st-century brands,” said Julie Brannen, Director, Sustainability Solutions, Monadnock.

Hemp Envi is the latest addition to Monadnock’s flourishing Envi Performance Board portfolio, a premium alternative to commodity board. Increasingly specified by the world’s leading brands as they look to meet the challenges of more sustainable packaging options for their discerning consumers, Monadnock papers continue to set the new standard in performance and sustainability.
