Paper Is Bad For The Environment Myth
Paper is recycled more than any other commodity and the benefits include: extending the wood fiber supply; reducing greenhouse gas emissions by avoiding methane emissions (released when paper decomposes in landfills or is incinerated); contributing to carbon sequestration; reducing energy needed for paper production; and saving landfill space. These features, combined with the North American paper industry’s advocacy of responsible forestry practices, certification, the use of renewable biomass and advances in efficient papermaking
technology, make paper one of the most sustainable products we use. In Canada, 87% of the wood fiber used to make paper comes from a blend of sawmill residues (59%) and recycled paper (28%). The paper industry adheres to respected third-party certification standards, ensuring the paper you use has come from a sustainable forest source . Maximizing the use of recycled fibers and sourcing virgin fiber from credibly certified natural forests and plantations can reduce paper’s ecological footprint.
