PAPER IS GREENER THAN YOU THINK
Is your knowledge of paper production fact or fiction? The link below will take you to a website to help you sort out the truths from the misconceptions. The good news is, it’s not bad news. Paper production is not the bully to the environment that people generally believe it is.
Does an increase in paper production result in fewer forests? You might automatically think so, but when you know the facts, you might just be surprised. Although trees are associated with paper production, the raw materials derived from it produce a wide array of products. The wood itself can build everything from a church pew to a rollercoaster, the sawdust contributes to particle board and fuel, the bark and cork are key ingredients to decorative mulch, shoes and baseballs. But it’s the pulping of the wood that takes credit for the paper products you use every day. Not just books, boxes and grocery bags, but products like turpentine, jigsaw puzzles and artificial kidney membranes. When you think about all the products that can be assembled, and the tree is the main ingredient, it might just make you appreciate them a little more.
Companies, who need the trees for their product, know their value. That is why huge steps are made every day to combat the possible loss of forestry.
