PaperBack has been selling recycled paper since 1983. The original aim of the
company was to help close the recycling loop by providing greater choice of
recycled printing papers.

PaperBack launched SylvanCoat, the UK’s first coated recycled printing paper
in the late eighties and we were the first paper merchant in the country to be
awarded FSC Chain of Custody. The company pioneered environmental
labelling with the ‘abcd’ classification system and we continue to assess the
environmental performance of our suppliers each year
