Raw rolling papers have undoubtedly come to be one of the biggest names in the industry over the last 5 years. Their cool image, sustainable ethos and downright awesome products have seen them connecting with smokers all over the world to bring new standards to the smoking industry. Their Ethos has also influenced a lot of people to be more conscious of the way their lifestyle affects the earth
What are the made from?
Raw papers are made from 100% completely unrefined materials. Whether it be their organic or their classic you know that they don’t cost the earth.
The hemp they use is organically grown, sustainably sourced, and processed in an eco friendly way. Their classic papers are made from non-chlorinated wood pulp, sustainably sourced and processed using sustainable energy sources such as wind. They even contain vegan glues!!! How good is that?!?
Where are they made?
Long before the invention of news papers, smokers used to roll the left up remnants of the aristocracies cigar butts in newspaper! This is of course very dangerous, especially with the inks of the day. So once the smoking trend had made its way to the largest paper manufacturing town in Spain, Alcoy, something had to be done! Many companies have made their way through Alcoy, and it is now the home to RAW! It is in their ethos to stick to heritage and protect an industry they hold so close to their heart.
Benefits of unbleached
The concept of having pure white papers grew out of the fact that when news paper was used, it contained lots of inks and contaminants. A pure white rolling paper represented a healthier alternative, but as we know now that is not the case!
Chlorine is a highly dangerous chemical that can cause severe irritation and even poisoning, so it’s probably not the best thing to be burned and inhaled.
We all know smoking is bad for our health, but we may as well attempt some harm reduction. Plus, our bad habit is contributing to the destruction of our planet through poisoning the air and water.
Celebrity & Charity endorsements
The raw paper, and the lifestyle choices they promote, has been adopted by many celebrities and praised by many other organisations. Raw have decided to endorse those celebrities themselves, and together they have made stylish products to offer their supporters. Rappers such as Wiz Khalifa and Kotton mouth kings have their own products and charities like push trees have their own ones too.
