Product Responsibility and Sustainability
Paper is the most sustainable form of physical advertising.
It is recyclable and is made from a natural resource that is renewable. These features, combined with the U.S. paper industry’s advocacy of responsible forestry practices and certification, use of
renewable, carbon-neutral biofuels and advances in efficient papermaking technology, make paper one of the most sustainable products on earth.
Print Uses “Waste”
One-third of the fiber used to make paper comes from wood chips and sawmill scraps; another third comes from recycled paper. Overall, in the United States nearly 80% of the over 400 paper mills use recovered fiber to make some or all of their paper products, and of these, approximately 115 mills use recovered paper exclusively.
Print is Recycled
But that is not the complete story. Print on paper is recycled and reused. In 2010, for example 63.4% of all paper used in the United States was recycled, and this number increases each year with more deliberate curbside and drop-off collection systems. Recycled paper is used to make everything from construction products to consumer goods.
