Crescent Cardboard Company, the world's largest producer of matboard, announced a partnership with Keep America Beautiful. Crescent is known within the custom framing industry for their premium, eco-friendly matboard line, RagMat.

The company has made a substantial donation to Keep America Beautiful and encourages consumers to select RagMat, available only at professional custom framers, as the best choice for framing their cherished works of art and photography.

"Crescent's RagMat matboard line shares Keep America Beautiful's mission because it is made with 100% cotton, which is not only safe for the environment, but safe for the artwork it surrounds," said Kate McCarthy, senior vice president of marketing for Crescent. "We are proud to be partnering with Keep America Beautiful, an organization that has worked to inspire environmental responsibility for more than 50 years."

Customers interested in choosing environmentally friendly products for their home can protect their art with RagMat matboard. RagMat is made with 100% pure cotton, a sustainable product that provides an eco-friendly alternative to wood fibers.

Cotton also has a natural, lasting brightness that does not require extensive chemical processing. Not only does RagMat beautify the artwork it surrounds, but it also offers the highest level of protection for treasured pieces of art, photography and family memorabilia.

"Crescent's commitment to sustainability through their cotton RagMat line and engagement with local professional custom framers makes them an ideal partner to support Keep America Beautiful's national and community-based efforts," said Matthew McKenna, president and CEO of Keep America Beautiful.
