Why do paper choices matter?

By choosing the right paper, you can save wood, water, and energy, and cut pollution and solid waste. The Paper Calculator shows the environmental impacts of different papers across their full lifecycle.

Paper Calculator

Compare different papers. Enter the grade of paper you use and how much, and see how using less paper, increasing recycled content, or making other changes can reduce impacts. Compare individual papers or groups of papers.

See the environmental benefits. Save the results in an easy-to-read report, to help your company, community, school, non-profit or other organization measure the benefits of better paper choices.

COMPARE the impacts of a specific paper you use today with alternatives containing higher recycled content.

COMPARE the impacts of several papers you use today with a set of recycled alternatives.

Environmental impact estimates are made using the Environmental Defense Paper Calculator. For more information visit
