It's just a notebook...The average person in the U.S. consumes about 700 lbs. of paper per year, making the U.S. the largest comsumer of paper in the world. 90% of the printing/writing paper comes from virgin tree fiber. Once used, paper generally ends up in the municipal waste stream. 40% of the total waste in landfills is paper. Producing recycled paper causes 74% less air pollution, 35% less water pollution, and creates 5 times the number of jobs than producing paper from trees. It saves old-growth trees, forest eco-systems, native habitat and biodiversity.
It is important to distinguish between pre-consumer and post-consumer content in recycled paper. Pre-consumer content is typically gathered from paper scraps and trimmings left over from the paper manufacturing or converting processes. These paper scraps are usually much easier to collect, and have less need to be separated, have ink removed, etc. Post-consumer waste (PWC) is paper which has been used by the end consumer and is then collected for recycling from various recycling programs. This is the best paper to buy; as it uses and creates demand for paper which would normally end up in the landfill and no trees are cut down for paper manufacturing.
The actual percentage of the recycled and post-consumer recycled content is important to note when buying paper, e.g. 100% recycled 30% PCW means 70% is pre-consumer recycled and 30% is post-consumer recycled.
