Do you know what to look for when procuring ‘sustainable’ paper?
There are a number of characteristics to look for to know that you are making the most sustainable choice in paper. Sustainable fibre sourcing is the most obvious characteristic but also consider:
- Where the paper is made (country of origin)
- How the paper is made (environmental impacts)
- Who the paper is it made by (social impact) and
- Which economy benefits from the manufacture and sale of the paper (economic impact)
All of these characteristics and more will help you make a sustainable paper choice.
