What's wrong with Reflex?
Sadly, there is only one Australian copy paper maker - Nippon Paper
- and Nippon Paper doesn't make office papers that are environmentally
Their flagship brand Reflex is sourced from the destruction of our native
forests. This is unacceptable in a continent that has only 5% native
forest cover and has seen 60% of its native forests cleared since Europeans
Nippon Paper also sells Reflex under other labels: Oz Copy, Optix, Copyright
and Australian Paper.
Nippon Paper's "recycled" brands Renew and Oz Copy Green are
not genuine recycled papers. Their pulp has never been used by consumers.
Rather, they are sourced from printers' offcuts and similar waste, so
it's mostly sourced direct from native forest destruction, like Reflex.
Fujixerox's brand Greenwrap is 10% post-consumer waste, 40% pre-consumer
waste (directly sourced from forest destruction), 10% cotton linters,
and 40% plantation fibre from Thailand, Brazil, Indonesia and Canada.
All of Paperlinx/Amcor's copy papers use a chlorine bleaching process
with discharge of toxic organochlorines into the environment.
To help save our native forests, please avoid all of the above office
papers until the day that Nippon Paper decides to produce them from
genuine recycled and/or plantation pulp.
"Genuine Recycled" paper is 100% made from post-consumer waste.
It has been used at least once by consumers, collected and reconverted
to pulp to make paper again.
Price varies according to size of order. Ring around.
To the best of our knowledge, the information in the brochure is correct
at the date of publication, 1st July 2006.

Buyer's Guide to Alternative Office Papers
· Over half of our native forests have been cleared since European
· Those remaining are fast disappearing, largely to make paper.
· In Victoria alone, around 15,000 hectares of public native
forest are clearfelled each year. This is equivalent to 20 football
fields cleared every day.This brochure is a guide to office papers that
are sourced from recycled and/or plantation pulp.
