the first ever
(PCW) papers.


We remain committed to the leading edge of agricultural, technical, and market developments in the field of kenaf tree-free fibers.


Who we are Who we are

Vision Paper is a small, innovative company that has taken

a clearly unique approach to paper. Our mission is to make the

most environmentally positive products possible.

What we do What we do

Vision Paper works with U.S. farmers to grow an annual row

crop called kenaf. We use the kenaf as our raw material instead

of trees. We manufacture pulp and paper, without using any

chlorine compounds, and we sell the paper to printers,

companies, and organizations nationally.

On the Farms On the farms

Low input sustainable agricultural practices like crop

rotations are promoted to reduce or eliminate the use of

fertilizers and chemicals. Because kenaf is grown for the

fibrous stalk, and not the fruit or flower of the plant,

insecticides are not required. All of our kenaf is grown on

farms here in the U.S.A.

At the mill At the mill

Kenaf offers a "pollution solution." Less chemicals and

energy are required, and our pulp is totally chlorine free (TCF).

No dioxins or other chlorine compounds are created or released

in the manufacturing process. All of our pulp and paper is

manufactured in the U.S.A. in strict compliance with U.S.

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations.

Why we do it Why we do it

Growing world population rates indicate a growing demand for

paper. Recycling alone cannot satisfy this demand. Unless we

begin making paper from something other than trees,

deforestation will become a bigger and bigger problem.

Kenaf offers a clearcut alternative. Rural economies are in need of

clean, sustainable and high quality job creation. Kenaf provides

opportunities for new business development in an environmentally

sound manner. Farmers need new crops to diversify the rotation

options, and to reduce the level of surpluses. Surplus crops drive

prices down and hurt the smaller farmers. By increasing the number

of crop options, surpluses will be reduced.
