Did you know?

  • Making paper from raw materials produces 70% more greenhouse gases than if it was to be made from recycled materials.
  • A forest the size of Wales is needed to supply the amount of paper that is used in the UK every single year.
  • 11 million tonnes of CO2 equivalent emissions were avoided by recycling paper and cardboard in 2008. This is the equivalent of taking 3 ½ million cars off of the road.
  • The amount of paper that is buried in landfill sites each year would fill 103,448 double decker buses, which if parked nose to tail, would go from London to Milan.
  • It has been estimated that recycling half the world’s paper would avoid the harvesting of 20 million acres of forestland.
