Kudos to AFFTA for Pushing Recycled Paper Over Plastic

Posted on March 07 2017

If you aren’t part of the “kick plastic” movement, you should be.

We can do without those cheap little plastic fly cups. They might work in your shop, but they’re going to still be littering rivers in a thousand years. Paper is a smarter, more reasonable alternative, and AFFTA is helping shops make the transition:

From an AFFTA announcement:

Recycled paper fly boxes are now available at http://shop.affta.org! Choose from three different sizes to best suit your shop’s needs: 2″x2″x2″ (dry flies and nymphs), 3″x3″x2″ (bigger dry flies and nymphs, bass bugs, and smaller saltwater flies), and 6″x3″x2″ (big stuff like tarpon and billfish flies, plus a few leader packs and spools of tippet).

It’s estimated the fly-fishing industry adds about 3.5 million plastic containers annually to the environment from retail fly sales alone! These boxes will save retailers some serious money and eliminate a large amount of useless waste.

We’re proud to offer AFFTA members the ability to order recycled paper fly boxes on affta.org — you’ll find this is an easy, cost-effective way to lower your impact and help #kickplastic!
