We Walk the Walk
Since January 2019, The Tennessee Conservationist prints on 100% post-consumer recycled paper made by Rolland Enterprises, Inc. These papers have the lowest environmental footprint in their category, and are created without cutting down even one tree. Ninety-three percent of Rolland's thermo-energy needs are met from methane biogas, transported by pipeline from a landfill eight miles from the mill. Rolland generates 70,000 tons less CO 2 each year compared to traditional energy usage.
For a typical press run, we are proud to save the following resources by printing on Rolland's beautiful Enviro Print paper. Learn more here: www.rollandinc.com/en
