Why Recycle? Average Office Worker uses 10,000 Sheets Paper per Year

Start recycling in your office today.

Are you a paper pusher?

The numbers appear to be against you.  We’d like to make the case for starting a recycling program in your office.

 

Proposals, spread sheets, reports, sales letters, presentations – they’re all absolutely essential for managing and growing your business.  We get that.  But how can you get the whole office to become more sustainable in its paper usage?  The answer … start a company-wide recycling program.

 

Based on data collected by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Clean Air Council, the average U.S. office worker uses 10,000 sheets of copier paper every year.  That’s the equivalent of more than 4 million tons of paper, according to a recent Infographic put out by Paper Karma1.
