Green Paper [Infographic]

Breathe in, breathe out. You have just utilized the benefit of one tree. Trees are an environmental miracle – they convert carbon dioxide into oxygen, forests are homes to 80% of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity, and as a physical resource, they are used for products like chairs, building materials, and paper.

In the last decade alone, the tech boom has changed our ways of living and communicating, and has also added a heavy load onto the environment. Making electronics requires a lot of energy, nonrenewable materials like plastic and metals, and comes at the cost of harming the environment through using fossil fuels and emitting greenhouse gases, which contribute to global warming. In comparison, how is paper production and use any safer?

Paper encourages more tree planting, is less harsh on the environment, and uses significantly less renewable energy resources. Check out this infographic “Green Paper: Why Paper is Surprisingly Eco-Friendly” to learn more about the benefits of using paper!
