Recycled Paper

Check with your supplier to find out if you library is purchasing recycled office paper. (or, encourage your institution to find a more earth friendly paper supplier.)  Look for at least 30% of higher post-consumer when buying recycled paper. This means the original paper wasn’t recycled scrap from the mill but was actually used for something first and is now being recycled. Also check to make sure chlorine wasnt used in the process and that the original wood fiber was manufactured from sustainable growth.

New Leaf Paper is a company to check out for recycled office paper.
