Paper Cost and Waste Reduction Guidelines

Green paper management leads to savings of money, waste and trees

Find green business solutions
greenschools Businesses and consumers can stop wasteful paper trails that leads to unnecessary production and landfill accumulations.

  • By recycling paper we reduce the number of virgin trees that are required.
  • By purchasing paper with high recycled content (30% or more) we encourage and support the production of recycled paper inventory.
  • By using less paper we make the biggest impact. Businesses can print less over-runs on catalogs and brochures. Designers can reduce the size of publications with fewer pages, less white space, and more references to details found online.
Marketing communications, corporate communications and consumer desktop printing all consume more paper than we ever thought possible.

And the paper industry isn't just about books and newspapers and brochures.

Paper is used for product packaging, packing material, shredded for horse barns...and even used for worm farming.

Breaking wood pulp down into paper fibers is a complex chemical process that consumes both heat and energy. And trees. And chemicals. All this processing results in pulp that is used to manufacture a wide diversity of products. Look around you. How many paper products are in your environment? Count the boxes. The stacks of magazines. The catalogs. The greeting cards. The reams of blank paper.

Greening the paper industry will require conscientious management techniques by the paper mills, as well as responsible recycling by consumers and city governments that collect trash and recycle or dispose of well as innovating new ways to share ideas and information.

Green for the real world requires new thinking about step at a time.
