Paper Specs:

The Green America Better Paper Project is collaborating with New Leaf Paper to provide magazine publishers competitively priced paper with some of the highest environmental standards in North America. The paper options from FutureMark Paper Company just outside of Chicago include:

FutureMark Connection (76 & 80 Bright in Satin or Gloss LWC, #5)

FutureMark Choice (82 Bright Gloss, LWC, #4)

All papers have 30% post-consumer recycled content (90% reclaimed fiber), are processed chlorine free, and FSC-certified. The sheets were designed with greater bulk than most competitors, enabling customers to reduce basis weight to save both money and natural resources.


As the total volume of magazine paper purchased through the Buying Club increases, the cost of recycled paper will decrease and members will automatically get a reduced price (regardless of what they initially paid). Please contact us to get exact prices.



To help publishers communicate their environmental savings, New Leaf Paper can create a customized Eco-Audits for all printed materials. Having pioneered the Eco-Audit over 10 years ago, and with over 10 million of them in circulation, New Leaf Paper’s Eco-Audit is a recognized and understood expression of resources savings in trees, water, energy, solid waste and greenhouse gases.
