Australian papermaker is making a lot of its paper from recycled plastic.
The company, which has been making paper for more than 50 years, is now turning to recycling materials.
Rolando Carranza, CEO of American washi, says the company has been recycling all of its plastic and paper products since 2010.
“The plastic is the best because we use the most plastic and it’s the most durable,” Mr Carranzo said.

In the 1920s, American washers were also making paper, but the paper industry was dying out and the American market was dominated by Europe.
When American washer companies were closing down, Mr Carrenzo started American wash papermaking to provide an alternative.
Mr Carrenezas paper mill now produces more than 1 million sheets of paper each day.
He also says it is the most sustainable paper making process, because it uses the most recycled materials.
“We don’t use plastic anymore, and we use all of the recyclable materials that we use,” Mr Tatum said.
The company is currently looking to use recycled plastics from the US to make more of its American paper.
“I have a lot more interest in recycled plastics because they are so cheap, so cheap,” Mr Roldan said.
“When we can make the best American paper and the best European paper, I want to make as many as possible.”
The company says it will start using recycled plastics in the next few years.
American washi has also been using recycled plastic containers in the past.
But the company said the new containers would be more durable and environmentally friendly than the plastic bags and packaging that were currently used.
“Our containers will last 10, 20, 30 years,” Mr Yankovic said.

It has also used recycled paper from Europe, Australia and the United Kingdom.
Now, American ishi is turning to recycled materials from around the world to make its paper.
While American washes its paper and then passes it off to recycling facilities, it is also using plastic bags to make paper.
