5 benefits of using recycled paper

A change of habit that can bring many advantages for the environment and for us.

All environment

Producing and consuming recycled paper brings a lot of benefits, but this is a practice that is not yet widespread in our country. For that reason, we want to tell you some of the benefits that it brings, so that we can all begin to become aware of the importance of changing these habits.

Benefits of using recycled paper:

  1. We take care of forests: A ton of recycled paper saves the lives of 15 adult trees.
  2. We save energy: Making paper from recycled pulp and not virgin cellulose requires 60% less energy.
  3. We save water: A ton of recycled paper saves more than 30,000 litres of water.
  4. Reduce garbage overload: Every ton of new paper occupies almost two cubic meters of landfills or garbage.
  5. We save money: The producer reduces their fiber cost by 25%, which should make the final product cheaper.
