Rooted in the Swedish forests
Lessebo Paper is located in a densely forested area right between large shallow lakes in the inland region of Småland. We have produced paper generation over generation, developing the most climate friendly paper in the world. It is in our nature to care and foster the surroundings for the coming generations. The result of our hard work is a fully biodegradable and recyclable paper, made of 100% TCF pulp. Produced with responsibility for our environment – and the coming generations.
