One ton of paper made from recycled fibers instead of virgin fibers saves 17-31 trees, 7000 gallons of water, 380 gallons of oil. It eliminates 3 cubic yards of landfill material, keeps 60 lbs of air pollutants out of the air, it conserves 4000 kWh of electricity, and results in 74% less air pollution and 35% less water pollution. Making recycled paper requires fewer chemicals and bleaches than making all-new paper. The 17 trees saved can absorb up to 250 pounds of carbon dioxide from the air each year, protecting the ozone layer.
It's also really GOOD to buy locally made products!
Remember that when we buy locally produced goods, we not only help our country’s economy, and help small businesses thrive, we are also reducing how much pollution we are causing because we cut down on fuel costs, lessening the greenhouse gas emissions.
