In May 2011 a rare white kiwi chick hatched at Pukaha Mount Bruce and here it is printed offset on Rockstock RPD200 at Printcraft in Wairarapa. Pictured here is Lisa Sims of the Pukaha Mount Bruce Board and Lance Johnson from Printcraft with a poster of 'Manukura'.  We think this poster is an ideal use for Rockstock. Lance indicated to us that the rockstock RPD fed very flat and well in the feeder with the standard inks drying quicker than usual, giving a great result.

Proceeds from these posters help protect endangered native species in the Pukaha Mount Bruce forest.

In November 2010 The  stone paper Mill achieved another environment certification ISO14001. The ISO 14001 environment management standards exists to help organizations to (a) minimize how their operations negatively affect the environment (i.e. cause adverse changes to the air, water or land); (b) comply with applicable laws regulations, and other environmentally oriented requirements, and (c) continually improve in the above. It was a proud day for all members of the stone paper family! Stay tuned as more environmental certifications are on their way!
