Paperstone Cutting Board Small by Preserve
These cutting boards will astound you. They feel like a cross between wood and slate, but are actually made from recycled office paper fortified with natural tree resins. This material is remarkably sturdy and durable, creating a superior cutting surface that won't dull your knives.
And unlike wooden cutting boards, you can always toss our Recycled Paper Cutting Boards into the dishwasher. They are covered with a nonporous, petroleum-free coating allowing for a thorough clean.
Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.
- Durable, knife-friendly board
- non-porous surface Feels like wood, but dishwasher safe
- Made in USA
Those are the principles that have driven Preserve company since 1996 and that motivate us to encourage more households to choose Preserve 100% recycled and recyclable products over conventional products.
Preserve plastic products are made from #5 polypropylene plastic collected from individuals via Preserve Gimme 5 program and from companies like Stonyfield Farm®. We take this plastic, sort it, clean it, test it, recycle it, and turn it into new Preserve products.
Choosing Preserve Plastic (in the form of a toothbrush or razor, for example) means a sizeable reduction in greenhouse gases emitted, and significantly less water, energy, oil, natural gas, and coal used in making plastic.How did we calculate these numbers?
Preserve uses a tool known as a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) to assess the environmental impact of our materials, products, and services. Life Cycle Assessment is a tool used to compare the environmental impact of a product or system’s entire life cycle, from raw material sourcing to manufacture to disposal. Or more simply, an LCA measures the impact from the beginning to the end: including transporting the source material for Preserve Plastic, making Preserve products, getting the product to the store and your doorstep, and finally, what happens to the product when you are done with it.
Polypropylene, the plastic that Preserve’s products are made from, is known to be a safe food-grade material and to create packaging and products that have a low environmental impact. To better understand the environmental impacts of recycled polypropylene, Preserve purchased Life Cycle Inventory data on Preserve own recycled polypropylene and virgin polypropylene from PE Americas, a consulting firm, which uses GaBi 4 Life Cycle Assessment software. GaBi 4 is known for its accurate and up to date data sets.
These Life Cycle Inventory (LCI) datasets detail the inputs and outputs of recycled and virgin polypropylene – everything used to make polypropylene as well as all the waste created by the manufacturing process (including water usage, energy usage, pollutants, etc.). Using these datasets we were able to understand the environmental impact differences between virgin polypropylene and Preserve particular process for recycling yogurt cups shipped from the middle of the United States, 1500 miles, to Preserve reprocessor.
PE Americas based this analysis on a standard model of data representative of the manufacture of recycled and virgin polypropylene in the United States. In order to customize this data for Preserve’s manufacturing methods, we provided some specific numbers such as Preserve recycling scrap rate, contamination rate, and machine energy consumption. We:" ":ere are likely differences between Preserve’s specific recycling processes and the industry average. There are many assumptions involved when calculating environmental impact, such as machine efficiency, the types of trucks used to transport the plastic to be recycled, and how full those trucks are. Preserve reduced these numbers by 20% for Preserve Plastic to account for these differences. Preserve is confident in these numbers since Preserve recycling process is founded on Preserve steady and reliable recycled polypropylene stream.
Preserve makes stylish, high performance, eco-friendly products for your home. As a company, we strive to combine socially and environmentally responsible business practices with groundbreaking design to create products that people feel good about having in their homes. We believe that choosing eco-friendly products doesn't mean having to sacrifice quality, price, or performance.in 1996, founder and president eric hudson was committed to the need to use our earth's resources more efficiently and responsibly. The developing plastic recycling market represented a great new opportunity to reuse our earth's resources. Eric started preserve to reuse earth's precious resources and turn them back into products that people wanted.
