Green Way Eco-Fill shreds are made from a heavier basis weight of paper than most competing shreds and therefore pound for pound will stuff at least 50% more. This 6 lb box is smaller than its competitors 10 lb box, and can stuff the same amount of containers! Plus dimensional shipping charges are much less! Because the product is made close to the mill we can sell it for less, and because of the quality of paper… it will go farther! These crinkle accordion shreds are produced from paper made just down the street at the 140 year old family run French Paper Mill in Niles, MI. Not only is the paper 100% recycled, but the mill itself is “off the grid”, meaning it is totally water powered producing its own electricity from the nearby St. Joseph River. Even the discharge from the mill is cleaner than the water in the river! This mill was green before green was cool and earns a special recognition in the Green Way brand.
