The sustainable product lines created by Favini each using different percentages of materials alternative to virgin tree cellulose.
One of the lines created by Favini intended to reduce the consumption of virgin fibre is Remake. This is a combination of leather-paper inspired by the fashion world that integrates eco-efficiency and creative recycling.
A quarter of its raw materials derive from leather and leather products manufacturing waste, 40% is recycled post-consumer paper fibres and the rest is composed of FSC® certified virgin cellulose.
The FSC® certified Remake line embraces the concepts of environmental sustainability and creative reuse, introducing the use of leather by-products.
The product is 100% recyclable and compostable, is manufactured using entirely renewable, self-produced and EKO-certified energy and the CO2 emissions emitted by the production of Remake are offset through the purchase of carbon credits.

Another sustainable line is Crush, which due to agreements made with the agro-industrial sector is produced using 15% plant waste (GMO Free) from grape, citrus fruit, kiwi, corn, hazelnut, almond, olive, cherry, lavender and coffee.
The Crush paper line is in part made with alternative raw materials, such as agro-industrial waste.
Also containing 40% recycled FSC® post-consumer fibre and 45% FSC® certified virgin fibre. The energy used during the production process of the Crush line is also derived entirely from renewable sources which is EKOenergy certified.
Favini has signed a voluntary agreement with the Environment Ministry, meaning that it commits to monitoring and reducing its carbon footprint. Due to this use of plant waste and green energy, the CO2 emitted by the production of Crush has been reduced by 20% when compared to equivalent non-ecological product lines. Any subsequent unavoidable emissions are then offset through the purchase of carbon credits.
FSC® certified, Crush is totally recyclable and biodegradable.

The Shiro line includes three eco-friendly products:
Shiro Alga Carta uses only excess algae from endangered lagoon environments;
Shiro Tree Free is made with fibres from annual crops such as bamboo, cotton and bagasse;
Shiro Alga Carta has been approved by the European Commission and included in their LIFE Project as it uses excess product of plant origin to replace virgin fibres.
Additionally it is made even more eco-friendly as the CO2 emissions are offset through the purchase of carbon credits generated by a wind farm project in Turkey.
CO2 emitted by the production of Shiro that is offset thanks to the purchase of carbon credits.
Starting from 2017, this programme of emission offsetting was also applied successfully to the Crush line, demonstrating Favini’s ongoing commitment to safeguarding the environment.
The eco-friendly papers Crush and Shiro Alga Carta are used by the Cartotecnica division of Favini. They too are attentive to such environmental issues, as reflected in their Calligraphy Nature product line.
