Printech:

A new option is available for environmentally-friendly paper. The Lyons
Falls Pulp and Paper Mill in New York has received the Forest Stewardship
Council certification label. This indicates that the pulpwood comes from
a forest in which water quality, wildlife habitat and recreational
opportunities are protected. It also requires that the paper production
protect worker and community interests.

Many types and grades of paper are said to be available soon.
