Print is Responsible
What you need to know about the paper used in print projects:
• About 90% of paper and paperboard consumed in the United States is produced in the United States.
• 33% of the fiber used to make paper comes from recycled paper; 33% comes from wood chips and scrap from sawmills; and only 33% comes from virgin trees.
• Just 11% of the world’s forests are used for paper (53% for fuel; 28% for lumber; and 8% for other uses).
• Trees from tropical forests are not specifically harvested for paper. The direct causes of deforestation are actually agricultural expansion, wood for fuel, and urbanization and roads.
