Recycled paper is the end product of paper recycling. The production of recycled paper has significant environmental advantages over non-recycled paper production.
These environmental advantages include:
- Less Water Consumption – production of recycled paper uses 60% less water.
- Decreased Energy Usage – recycled paper manufacturing uses 50% less energy than non-recycled paper.
- Reduces Landfill Space – One ton of paper sent to the landfill requires 3.3 cubic yards of space.
- Saves Trees – One ton of paper recycled saves 17 trees.
Recycling paper has had a positive impact on the environment and it’s estimated that 65% of all paper in the US is recycled, diverting it from the high environmental cost of its disposal in landfills.
The Smart Choice for you –
No Added Cost – The cost of recycled paper has plummeted in recent years due to increased production. You won’t pay more for your choice to use recycled paper for your next project.
High Quality – Improvements in the manufacturing of recycled papers has created stunning results. You will not be able to tell the difference in a side-by-side comparison to non-recycled papers.
Availability – Increased demand for papers with recycled content has driven all of the paper mills to offer recycled options in their line of products. All grades of paper are available with recycled options with inventory to match the demand.
It’s estimated that there are now 20% more trees in the US than there were 25 years ago. Paper recycling and tree planting efforts are responsible for saving this precious natural resource.
You can do your part too by asking for recycled paper to be used on your next project. Chances are that recycled paper is already being used and you don’t even know it.
