41 colors, 5 embossings, recyclable and coated paper

Winter & Company has recently unveiled their latest series under the Ecorel® line, called Pure. Ecorel® Pure is created from recycled materials, making the product completely recyclable after use. The range includes a large palette of 41 vibrant colors and five different embossings that are perfect for complementing your creative vision and project. With Pure, Winter & Company breaks boundaries and invites you to explore unlimited creative possibilities with recyclable materials.

The basis of Ecorel® Pure consists of paper made from over 50% recycled fiber derived from post-consumer paper waste, commonly referred to as "post-consumer wastepaper" or PCW. Remarkably, the use of latex is eliminated, making the product fully recyclable. The result is a lightweight and highly durable coating that uses a water-based solution, free from environmentally harmful substances.

What is Winter Wrup-Cycling?

Winter & Company uses the term "Winter Wrup-Cycling" to refer to products in their portfolio where they systematically reduce the consumption of new resources. Through this approach, they create high-quality wrapping materials from waste that would normally be discarded, thus reducing environmental damage.

What began as a recycling initiative in the 1990s for tannery waste has since grown into a wide range of different recycled materials that together shape the future of the industry. Today, the portfolio contains more than 180 sustainable wrapping materials, all with the aim of minimizing the global impact of our industry.

Remarkably, latex, PVC and other environmentally harmful substances are completely eliminated in production, ensuring a green and responsible approach.

The lightweight but incredibly durable coating - complemented by the use of water-based colors - not only guarantees excellent quality, but also makes the entire product 100% recyclable and incredibly durable.
