Every ton of recycled paper saves about 17 trees. Recycling paper reduces methane and carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Paper makes up about 28% of solid trash in landfills and one ton of paper takes up about 3.3 cubic yards
of landfill space. Paper & Cardboard saves space in landfills for trash that cannot be recycled and saving space in landfills reduces the need to build more landfills.
For our environment to stay healthy, we need to promote sustainable practices within our societies. Paper-based packages have a far smaller impact on our environment than plastic packaging does, and this is important for keeping our environment in a healthy state.
