Ecological Guide to Paper

| Thursday May 12th, 2005 | 0 Comments

paper.jpgPaper, that most basic of products is also one of the most commonly recycled, reused and wasted. As your business tries to be more sustainable, choosing paper wisely is an important task. This handy guide from Celery Design should help a lot in exploring the differences between brands and types.
Remember though, “100% recycled” means essentially nothing – you have to look for the phrase “post consumer” if you actually want paper that was really recycled from the waste stream. Also, the guide mentions paper that comes from certified sustinable forests. Assuming a forest is properly managed, virgin pulp is not necesarily any worse than recycled, and in some cases is better!
