Every day, U.S. businesses generate enough
paper to circle the earth 20 times.

In an office, up to 80% of the solid waste
is made up of paper and cardboard products.

How to Reduce Paper Waste
  • Use both sides of paper.
  • Use e-mail or electronic bulletin boards for memos instead of paper.
  • Reuse paper printed on only one side as scratch paper.
  • Use reusable and washable coffee mugs.
  • Utilize a central filing system to reduce multiple file copies.
  • Purchase only paper that can be recycled.
  • Purchase only recycled paper products.
