What happens when paper is recycled?

As going green becomes a bigger deal in today’s world, more and more consumers are paying attention to where their products come from.

Do you know how many of the products you purchase are packaged using post-consumer waste?

Many products, such as cereal boxes, paper towels, toilet paper and napkins are now frequently made from recycled paper. In fact, 35 percent of most cereal boxes are — you can tell by the gray color on the inside of the box.

Paying attention to how products are packaged and buying recycled over new is a great way to be conscious of your impact. Plus, it creates more demand for reusing our resources rather than chopping down more trees.

“The EPA has found that recycling causes 35% less water pollution and 74% less air pollution than making virgin paper.”

At EcoShredding, we believe in protecting our resources. That’s why when we’re done shredding your documents, we make sure the pieces are recycled. Who knows, maybe one day the same paper will end up in your supermarket!
