Making a difference

If companies in just the medicine and cosmetics cartons sector
switched to 35% post-consumer recycled content, the benefits for our
environment and our forests are truly substantial.

According to Environmental Defense’s Paper Task Force, such a switch would:

Save 510,000 tons of trees per year;

Cut 156,000 tons of greenhouse gas emissions;

Reduce wastewater discharges by 2.6 billion gallons; and

Prevent 106,000 tons of solid waste, the equivalent of the trash from 49,000 households.
