Montreal, QC — By a twist of green magic, Cascades Fine Papers Group was chosen to manufacture the paper required for the Qubec edition of the book Harry Potter et les Reliques des la Mort, published by Les ditions Gallimard.
While Harry Potter fights with Voldemort, his book is committed to fighting an environmental battle by using environmentally-friendly paper. Chosen for its environmental attributes and its printing quality, Regeneration100 paper contains 100% post-consumer fibre and is manufactured exclusively for Transcontinental. Not a single tree was cut down to produce this paper, since the fibre comes entirely from recycled wastepaper. Approved by recognized environmental organizations, the paper has been certified Environmental Choice and Processed Chlorine Free and is manufactured in Qubec using biogas energy.
The use of Cascades paper for the Qubec edition of the last book of Harry Potter has enabled tremendous preservation of the environment. Using this paper instead of virgin paper has saved the equivalent of 114 football fields of trees, the water needed for a shower of 708 days and the air emissions of 71 cars. A fine green gesture to preserve the Forbidden Forest as well as our Muggle forests, a home to creatures, magical or not, where they will be able to continue to live.
