Cuddledown recently made a trip to Jay, Maine to visit the Maine branch of our paper mill, Verso. We love the fact that Verso has a long history with Maine paper, currently employs over 1,600 Maine workers, and takes great pride in sustainable practices!

So what exactly does a sustainable paper company do differently? Glad you asked!

“Verso has invested more that $62,000,000 in energy projects in Maine in the past two years, reducing Verso’s dependence on foreign oil, as well as the company’s carbon footprint.”

In recognition of all their steps towards a more sustainable business, Verso was even awarded the Green Business Innovator of the Year Award in 2009.

We couldn’t be happier about being able to print our catalogs on Maine-sourced paper harvested from local, sustainably farmed forests!
