Recyclable, Renewable Products

The process involved in the manufacture of Rite in the Rain paper was designed to have ultra-low impact on the environment. The water-based coating process emits only steam and all mill off-cuts are recycled back into the paper-manufacturing stream. All printing plates and processing liquids are recycled. 100% of printing inks are soy based. The modern facility and equipment are designed to be energy efficient.


In spite of Rite in the Rain’s durability, it’s as recyclable as standard office paper, which is untrue of synthetic, or poly coated papers. Simply recycle Rite in the Rain as you do other office paper. Furthermore, all our cover materials used on Rite in the Rain products (Polydura, Field-Flex, and Fabrikoid) are all recyclable using standard curbside recycling programs. For recycling Wire-O products, it’s recommended to separate the metal wire from the book prior to putting it all in the receptacle.



Rite in the Rain All-Weather Writing Paper is a patented substrate created for use in outdoor writing situations. Since this paper is designed for use in extreme conditions it is manufactured with the most durable yet recyclable components available. Recycled content pulp, as a result of the repulping & reprocessing involved in recycling, produce a “weaker” substrate due to the shortened fibres. This inherent weakness reduces the field-durability of paper and as such is not used in the manufacture of Rite in the Rain paper. It is one of the rare instances where virgin fibre adds significantly to the end-product function. Papers designed for “office or indoor” uses do not require this strength and as such can contain recycled fibre. This all being said, the wood fibres we utilize for Rite in the Rain are purchased from FSC Certified sources. By doing this it ensures our product is manufactured to high environmental and social standards and practices.


For nearly a century, Rite in the Rain has been manufactured in Tacoma, Washington,
USA to be used around the globe in situations ranging from desert warfare to tropical
rainforest insect research.
