Making packaging from recycled materials responds to growing interest in sustainability and simply makes good ecological sense in a region without a homegrown source of wood fiber. So in 2004, we established Refal Environment Services Company, which collects and sorts waste paper from across the Kingdom and recycles it into paper rolls.
Recycling paper conserves more than trees: it conserves water and energy, and reduces pollution compared to manufacturing paper from new pulp. Since 2004, we’ve recycled an average of 118,000 tons of paper annually, which each year saves:
- More than 3,000,000,000 liters of water
- More than 2,000,000 trees
- More than 1,000,000 barrels of oil
- More than 250,000 cubic meters of landfill
