Terraskin,  Via Stone and Fiberstone are tree-free papers made of minerals.  Stone paper is similar to traditional papers only it has a lot of advantages. When it comes to printing Via Stone paper uses 20-30% less ink than conventional papers.  Stone paper can be water-resistant, tear-resistant, recyclable and biodegradable.  No water or bleach can be used in its production as well!

There's no question it's a cool material but Terraskin does not use 20%-30% less ink, it actually uses about 20% more, and while it has a low carbon footprint and saves water it is NOT biodegradable. Greenwashing hurts us all. For the facts about stone paper please navigate to http://www.naturalsourcepartners.com. The FiberStone® brand stays true to the facts and doesn't rely on greenwashing to sell the product.

Hey! Thanks for writing. I did not know that about Terraskin. I guess i should not use the word Terraskin but use the word Stone Paper instead.
