Paper

Recycling looks especially good on paper.

Fast Facts

An impact to write home about

The environmental benefits of paper recycling are immense. Recycling one ton of paper can save 380 gallons of oil, 7,000 gallons of water, and enough energy to power the average U.S. home for six months. And because paper can be broken down and reused up to seven times, it’s also good for business. Diverting paper from the landfill can reduce your waste costs dramatically—especially if your business churns through a lot of it.

  • Recycled paper production uses 26% less energy than production from fresh pulp
  • Recycled paper production emits 40% less greenhouse gas
  • Recycled paper production requires 43% less waste water
