[BIFAN uses Moorim’s environment-friendly products at the Festival]
Moorim, a leading company in Korea for pulp, paper and new materials, is drawing attention by holding an environment-friendly film festival by joining hands with the 26th Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival, or BIFAN (led by Director Cheol Shin).
BIFAN is one of Asia’s largest film festivals focusing on a specific genre. This year, it aims to minimize its environmental impact in the process of producing and using a range of materials needed for running the festival, in a bid to live up to social responsibility and help create a better, more sustainable future. As part of such efforts, BIFAN announced that they have fully adopted the products of Moorim, a company known for its environment-friendly products such as natural pulp mold containers and eco-plastic forks.
Moorim is the only company in the Korean paper manufacturing industry to have been certified for its low carbon products by the Ministry of Environment. The certification is given to products with outstanding contributions in their product category for greenhouse gas reductions. The BIFAN Executive Committee also used Moorim’s 'Neo Star Uncoated' and 'ARTIZEN' for its program booklet and festival guide which are essential print materials used at the festival, to set a good example as an international film event.
The disposable containers and utensils used at parties or receptions have all been replaced with Moorim’s environment-friendly and biodegradable Neoforet paper cups, natural pulp mold containers and eco-plastic forks. The pulp mold containers, in particular, are made of 100% fresh pulp from Korea, are biodegradable and have passed the tests of BfR in Europe and the U.S. FDA. They are thus recognized as leading environment-friendly products that are safe enough to come into contact with food. As for eco-plastic forks, they have significantly reduced the content of petroleum-based plastics during their production.
CEO of Moorim, Dogyun Lee noted, “This event holds particular significance in that it brings together a leading international film festival held in Korea and a leading environment-friendly company in Korea. Moorim aims to look beyond simply selling its products to take into consideration its environmental impact and promote the value of paper’s application in a wide range of areas, while supporting a sustainable eco-system for art and culture.”
