VANCOUVER, BC, April 22, 2015 (Local News) -A New Westminster, B.C., company is looking to bring to the western market an environmentally friendly paper designed to minimize wood fibre use and already commonplace in Asian countries with limited wood supplies.

Social Print Paper is an affiliate of Royal Printers, a family-owned commercial printing business founded in 1932. Social Print's line of copy paper made from agricultural waste marks the first time the printer has entered the paper-production market.

According to Social Print's senior partner, Minto Roy, paper made from the waste produced from wheat farming is already in use in countries such as India, but the paper is of a low quality. Roy explained that in order to bring agricultural paper to North America, his company's product not only needs to be of the same quality that its clients are already used to, but also needs to have the same prices.
