Trend-setting chic and a pleasure for our resources

On the one hand, Ökomedia stands for ecological, resource-saving production. On the other hand, also for future-oriented projects that I like to support with my work.

In times of increasingly scarce resources, it makes sense for advertising media to help protect these resources, especially our forests. Thanks to ever-improving technology, it is now possible to produce paper from all sorts of materials, such as hemp, grass, T-shirts, rock flour or even dung. It remains to be seen to what extent these materials will be prepared for printing machines in the future.

In any case, I try to stay up to date here and to provide more and more information on this page in the future on the subject of eco-printing and other ecological advertising media. So far it has mainly been recycled papers and FSC-certified papers that dominate the market for eco-printing, as well as a few very interesting alternatives. To mention here rock dust and T-shirts. In the following, a small collection of alternative paper customers with info links will be created. If you are interested in an ecological advertising or print product, please contact me.

My current supplier for ecological print products is Die UmweltDruckerei. They only use recycled paper and work with sustainable production. You can use the linked logo to find out more about their philosophy:

Stone Paper

Stone paper consists of 80% calcium carbonate (limestone) and 20% bio-polyethylene resin (HDPE). Limestone from existing limestone quarries is used as the raw material and processed into a fine powder. Product and processing save a lot of water, waste and emissions. Suitable for all classic print products and advertising media.

In addition, stone paper is waterproof, resistant to grease and washable. It is 100% recyclable and turns back to calcium carbonate and turns back to limestone.

Grass paper

Only grass is used for the production of grass paper, which comes from compensation areas that are not suitable for food and feed production.
