of Manufacturers and Suppliers
This database identifies manufacturers and suppliers of paper and paper products containing reused or recovered materials.
EPA's Recovered Materials Advisory Notice (RMAN) recommends that procuring agencies establish minimum content standards expressed as a percentage of recovered fiber, including a percentage of postconsumer fiber. For most grades, EPA recommends postconsumer fiber content. Postconsumer fiber does not include newsstand returns or printer's overruns. See the paper product pages listed above for specific recommendations.
