What is Recycled Paper?
Recycled paper is made from paper and paper products that has already been used. Paper waste is essentially turned into usable paper that can ultimately be recycled and used again. This is an optimal way to protect and preserve our precious forest resources.
Why Should We Recycle Paper?
- A major part of municipal waste is made up of paper and paper products before the recovery of recyclable materials.
- Studies show up to 35 percent of the weight of solid waste is made up of paper.
- It has been estimated that recycling half the world’s paper would avoid the harvesting of 20 million acres of forestland.
