Going green & Recycling

An fact  here on recycling, which  I think I should share with you. If you are in any doubt about the printing industries green credentials, then please read on.


‘Today, the average recycling rate across European countries is over 62%, representing more than 50 million tonnes of used paper collected each year.

Paper fibres can be recycled up to six times, and recycling is certainly the best way to keep waste paper out of landfill. Where the UK is unable to use all the waste fibre collected, the material is exported, thus reducing the worldwide need for virgin fibre.’

So I reckon paper has excellent credentials as a renewable, sustainable and recyclable product, and managed paper production has a positive environmental impact. At the same time, a responsible use of paper and attitude to recycling will have an even greater environmental benefit.

'When people use more paper, suppliers plant more trees. If we want bigger commercial forests, then we should use more paper not less. Our policies should directly protect important wildlife habitats, not try to reduce our demand for paper.'

So keep it green!
