Tip of the day : Buy Recycled Paper

You:
By using less paper, or using paper with recycled content, and making other improvements, you can save wood, water and energy, and cut pollution and solid waste.

Work:
If your company switched their annual order of 100 tons of copy paper to a paper with 50% recycled content could save 173 tons of wood, 100,000 pounds of greenhouse gases, hundreds of pounds of toxic air and water pollutants and more than 50,000 pounds of solid waste.


Use the Environmental Defense Fund Paper Calculator. This tool will help you quantify the benefits of better paper choices. The Paper Calculator shows the environmental impacts of different papers across their full lifecycle. Papercalculator.org
