Environment

St Cuthberts Mill maintains the beautiful British countryside
where the mill is situated. Green fields, quiet country lanes
and abundant wildlife surround the mill.



Water
• The River Axe, which supplies the mill with water, is
 naturally very clean (the water’s properties are very
 constant because St Cuthberts Mill is close to the water’s
 source).

• St Cuthberts Mill returns the clean water to the river having
 removed all solids and papermaking additives.

• Trout live beside the mill in the River Axe. The water around
 the mill carries the highest level of classifi cation for
 cleanliness and biodiversity.

Raw Materials
• Wood is only used from sustainable sources.

• No rainforests harmed in the making of our paper.

• Pulp is oxygen bleached and Elemental Chlorine Free.

• Cotton linters come from the by-product of the textile
 industry.

• All materials are screened in the mill to ensure minimal
 environmental effect.

Waste Handling
• We reuse or recycle as much as possible.

Local Wildlife
• Ducks in the ponds, trout in the river, heron, pheasant,
 buzzards, foxes, badgers, roe deer and rabbits.
