We have the responsibility to leave the planet in better shape than we found it. As technology improves, we as a society become more efficient in our ability to get things done. We must not leave the environment by the wayside as we make progress. As a member of the Commercial Printing Industry, we take tremendous pride in our ability to make our marketing green and are working on helping educate others to do the same.
In 2016 Wallace Carlson Printing recycled 546 tons of paper.
That act alone was the equivalent of saving:
- 9,282 Trees
- 3,822,000 Gallons of water
- 2,,184,000 Kilowatt hours of electricity
- 1,801 cubic yards of landfill space
Every year the North American Paper industry helps grow more trees than it actually uses. Paper can be recycled 5-7 times before the wood fibers breakdown. It is also the most widely recycled substance with a 65% recovery rate. Learn more about the North American Paper and Forestry Industry with the video below.
