PEFC forest certification guarantees the correct environmental management of forests and its products, including cellulose. In addition, I remind you that ONLY pure virgin cellulose is suitable to enter a kitchen (compliance with H.A.C.C.P. regulations) and to come into contact with food. It is also hypoallergenic.
PEFC : Forest Management Certification
The entire STRONG line also has the suitability for contact with food.
The Econatural line uses the cellulose fibres found in Tetra Pak containers.
Philosophy: everything is recycled
Nothing is dispersed if everything is recycled! This is the idea from which we started to create Grazie Natural Lucart, which comes from the long experience of Lucart Group in the production of recycled paper.
The recovery process: efficiency, control and cleanliness
3/4 of a regular Tetra Pak container is made of cellulose fibres. The containers are entirely recyclable thanks to a clean and efficient process that separates the fiber from the rest of the components (polyethylene and aluminum). From what once contained milk, cream, soft drinks or juices we get new paper: a paper subjected to the strict quality criteria required by the certifications obtained by Lucart Group (Ecolabel, Emas, ISO 14001, ISO 9001, dermatological test).
The new charter: quality and sustainability
It is a particularly fine paper, with extraordinary characteristics of softness, resistance and absorbency but what is surprising is the color. The raw material from which the paper is obtained must be chemically treated to obtain the classic white colors, our new one maintains its natural color because we have chosen not to use any dye or bleaching. A choice in which we believe because we are also consumers and we know how important it is to be able to find safe products for your health.
The color of nature
To this paper we have given the name of Grazie Natural Lucart: the paper with extraordinary qualities and with the color of nature. All products of the Eco Natural line are Ecolabel certified, however they are suitable for contact ONLY with dry food as per art. 5b DM 220/93.
