ROCK PAPER

Rock Paper is simply a semi synthetic paper made from Rock. It is a combination of mineral powder (>75%) and a small quantity (<25%) of non-toxic resin combined to create an environmentally friendly paper. The production of Rock Paper requires no water, so the papermaking process incurs no water pollutants. Once used, Rock Paper will start to degrade under the proper environmental conditions of high heat, moisture and UV light. Most importantly, in producing Rock Paper, the harvesting of trees is unnecessary, thereby safeguarding the natural environment’s beauty and biodiversity for all living beings. Rock Paper also has beautiful printing capabilities and a unique texture and feel. Because the paper is fibreless, it does not absorb ink like regular paper and also uses less ink than regular paper. Images stay much crisper and cleaner because the ink doesn’t bleed. Rock paper is water-resistant and inherently strong and durable.
