Paper Recycling - Quick facts

We recycle all our paper at JEM Promotional Products, and recently received a newsletter from SITA Environmental Solutions. Check out some of the facts on paper recycling featured in their newsletter.
  • One tree makes approximately 3077 pieces of A4 paper
  • Making paper from recycled materials resultsin 74% air pollution and 35% less water pollution
  • One tonne of paper is equal to 40,000 sheets of paper
  • 87% of recycled paper is used in packaging materials
  • Recycling half of the world's paper would save 20 million acres of forested land.
