Did you know that office in the United States use 12.1 TRILLION sheets of paper every year, which averages out to about 1.5 pounds of paper waste per employee each day? That’s a lot of paper. And it is only getting worse. Paper usage is rising by an incredible 20% every year. It is no wonder that the paper industry ranks 4th in contribution to greenhouse gas emissions and contributes 9% of the manufacturing sector’s carbon emissions. Furthermore, 40% of the solid mass in landfills is paper and paperboard waste. Isn’t it time we do something about our wasteful business practices?
If U.S. offices cut paper usage by just 10%, it would prevent the emission of 1.6 million tons of greenhouse gases—the equivalent of taking 280,000 cars off the road. But how?
