Whats the Rip on Paper


  • Paper towels-Why do we NEED to use paper towels?  We don't Need Them-- wake up.......
    • According to the NRDC-- 544,000 trees/year would be saved by using one less roll of papertowels or by using 100% recycled papertowels..

  • paper products brands to AVOID:  Bounty, Viva, Kleenex, Puffs-These manufacturers haven't left their caves they are living in and still don't provide green paper manufacturing.  Wake up & recycle Bounty.
  • we are harvesting 24 million metric tons of trees for virgin paper production each year.
Do you work in an office that uses substantial amounts of paper? Assume your office uses 3000 reams of paper a year-which averages out to be 60 reams/week.
(One ream/box =500 sheets paper--requires 3.6kg of wood to create ).
  In a years time, your office would be utilizing 10,752 kg of wood to create all the paper you are using.

  • Recycled paper folks; 100% consumer recycled paper is available for all and is priced the same or sometimes cheaper than virgin paper.
  • Savings using Recycled paper: recycling one ton of newsprint saves about 1 ton of wood while recycling 1 ton of printing or copier paper saves slightly more than 2 tons of wood
