Reduce, Reuse & Recycle Your Paper

  • Apr 22, 2009

Do you ever stop and think before you print out a document how many trees were destroyed in the making of the paper?

I read some startling facts the other day from various sources, which noted that for every ton of paper made:
• 24 trees were chopped down.
• 40 thousand gallons of clean water were used during production.

In addition, among the byproducts from paper production”
• 5690 lbs of greenhouse gas will have entered the atmosphere.
• 20,000 gallons of waste water will be created.

Think twice before printing out your next email or computer file. Check how many pages a document will be in length — and see if you can reduce the font size, decrease the print margins, or just print out the first page or so.

Although the “paperless society” that was promised a decade ago has never materialized, you can do your part to reduce your paper consumption. It is the easiest place to start for a greener planet.
