Denver, U.S.A. – The Green America Better Paper Project released its latest “green paper,” ‘Green in All Grades,’ which debunks recent myths and proves that recycled paper is always the best environmental choice, especially when used in magazines.
‘Green in All Grades’ dissects the key arguments from recycled paper detractors so that paper purchasers can best understand and remain confident and comfortable that purchasing and using recycled paper is the best choice for the environment, climate, and people. In fact, the benefits are wide-ranging from mitigating climate change impacts to creating more jobs while also protecting biodiversity and improving air and water quality.
Frank Locantore, the director of the Better Paper Project, remarked, “Over the past few years, we’ve heard a lot of misinformation and unsubstantiated claims that recycled paper is a poor environmental choice for magazine paper, so we wanted to clear up confusion and present science-based facts to support magazines that want to do the right thing for the planet by using recycled paper.”
‘Green in All Grades’ proves:
Scientists have estimated that human activity has degraded almost 80 percent of what remains of the planet’s forests. Producing more virgin paper, which requires further harming our natural ecosystems, is not a sustainable solution to the growing global paper demand. However, a solution is within reach – utilizing the vast reserves of recoverable paper that are not currently being collected and turned into recycled paper.
To help magazine publishers stand out as environmental leaders, ‘Green in All Grades’ offers a step-by-step plan to increase the recycled content in their magazines, attract green consumers and support a sustainable 21st century economy.
