GET IN THE KNOW.
Being environmentally responsible has never been more important. Our Green Facts below show why going green is not an option, but a necessity.
• The paper industry is the one of the largest contributors to greenhouse gas emissions among United States manufacturing industries.
• If the United States cut office paper use by just 10% it would prevent the emission of 1.6 million tons of greenhouse gases - the equivalent of taking 280,000 cars off the road.
• Compared to using virgin wood, paper made with 100% recycled content uses 44% less energy, produces 38% less greenhouse gas emissions, 41% less particulate emissions, 50% less wastewater, 49% less solid waste and, of course, 100% less wood.

ON THE RIGHT PATH.
As the years go by, more emphasis is placed on the importance of sustainable business practices. In 2007, more than 56% of paper consumed in the U.S. was recycled; that equals 360 pounds for each person in the country! The more Americans recycle their waste and act responsibly, the better our environment will remain for future generations.
