Keep Me Posted Campaign

It is hard to imagine what life would be like without paper. All of us use it, in one of its many forms, each and every day. Just take a look around you and see how many different types of paper and board you can see.

Paper is a versatile material - it can decompose in water, yet maps can withstand the weather. Even boat hulls have been made from it.

Paper may be used as a fuel, or be made fire-resistant. It may be a carrier or a barrier or a filter. It may be made tough enough to withstand acid, or soft enough for a baby's skin. It can be read and it can be worn as a garment. The list is endless.

It can be re-used and recycled and it is made from a renewable source.

CPI provides a range of educational information. Just use the links on the left hand side to find out more about paper and board.

Rags to Riches

"From Rags to Riches"

The phrase ‘rags to riches’ originated during the
18th century when the price of rags soared with the
invention of the printing press and subsequent
increased demand for paper.
