Mohawk Renewal Straw
Straw is a byproduct of wheat farming. Every year, after the wheat harvest, thousands of acres of straw are either burned off or plowed under. Making paper with straw eliminates the need for “fall burns” set by farmers to clear straw from their fields, creating acrid smoke and carbon emissions.
Today, that impact is being mitigated by harvesting straw for paper pulp.
Mohawk Renewal Straw is made using 30% straw, processed by Columbia Pulp LLC in Eastern Washington, where a new mill has been built to process straw fibers into viable pulp to make fine paper. Blended with sustainable virgin wood fibers, Mohawk Renewal Straw has been engineered to perform on every press platform from digital to offset.
Mohawk Renewal Hemp
Hemp grows rapidly, maturing in as quickly as 90 days. Turning hemp into pulp requires less chemicals, water, and energy than wood.
Hemp fibers were an agricultural staple in Colonial America, used extensively in the manufacture of fabric, rope and paper. Then it was outlawed in the 1930s. Today, with depression-era laws rolled back and the expanding CBD and cannabis industries, hemp farming is growing as well.
Every sheet of Mohawk Renewal Hemp is made with 30% hemp fiber. Making paper with hemp contributes to the growth of a sustainable supply chain for this rapidly renewable fiber source.
Mohawk Renewal Recycled Cotton
For centuries, cotton textile waste was recycled to make paper. Today, there is more textile waste than ever. Made from t-shirt and denim scrap diverted from the millions of textile waste sent to landfills every year, Mohawk Renewal Recycled Cotton uses two sources for its cotton fiber: white t-shirt trim and blue denim thread.
Both shades of Mohawk Renewal Recycled Cotton are a direct reflection of their input materials. T-Shirt White is unbleached, white and pure cotton textile waste, while Denim is made from 30% denim thread and 70% cotton t-shirt textile. Mohawk Renewal Denim’s blue shade is derived solely from the blue of the denim thread, using no additional dyes.
