Worried about the quality of recycled paper?

Recycled paper has improved dramatically over the past few years. In fact, when it was compared to virgin bond at a recent meeting, no one could tell the difference between the two. It still costs about 20% more than virgin bond, but as it becomes more widely used the price should come down. On average, using recycled paper saves about 7 trees per ton. Here are some other environmental benefits of using recycled paper:

In the manufacturing process of recycled paper:

  • 74% less air pollution is generated
  • 35% less water pollution is generated
  • 58% less water is required
  • 64% less energy is required
