The Luther College Book Shop is going green by stocking a new type of paper.
Whitelines, a company based in Stockholm, Sweden, produces carbon neutral paper. Michael Walters, a 1999 graduate of Luther College and North American director of business development for Whitelines, contacted Jim Haemker, director of the Luther Book Shop, about putting the Whitelines product on the shelves of the bookshop.
"The plant actually reuses its carbon dioxide waste to fuel its facilities," said Walters.
"Paper is the third largest commodity used today," said Walters, "so by switching to a carbon-neutral paper product, there is huge potential for individuals, institutions, businesses and governments to reduce their carbon footprint."
