Sustainability

Red Leaf’s alternative fibre is created with reduced water and energy.

Processing wheat and similar grains does not take as much energy, water, and chemicals as wood pulp production. This is because of wheat’s lower moisture content, and the higher ratio of cellulose fibre to lignin. Wheat fibre production uses approximately 5% of the water and as little as 30% of the energy used in competing wood pulp production.*

Similar to wood pulp, customers can use Red Leaf’s alternative fibre to create items that are sustainable, recyclable, and compostable.

  • Composting helps divert waste from landfills; many other fibre-based and recyclable products do not biodegrade.
  • Can be blended with wood pulp to create other innovative, sustainable, and durable products.

Red Leaf’s processes do not affect land use or biodiversity

  • As we increase production, we will not alter land use. We will work with farmers and their existing fields.
  • Wheat straw is a sustainable feedstock alternative, as a byproduct of wheat farming.
