Reduce paper usage at your home and go green with these paper saving tips that are easy and inexpensive


Reduce Paper Usage Or Avoid Using Paper Entirely


The pulp and paper industry is the third largest consumer of energy and uses more water to produce a ton of product than any other industry. Here are some tips to reduce your paper usage and save a few trees:


    reduce_paper_use

  • Opt for paperless bill paying with your bank. This is another good option to reduce paper usage. environment_iconIf all US households would view and pay their bills online, it would save 16.5 million trees per year (3).
  • Recycle your newspapers whenever you can. environment_icon Save paper by recycling a four-foot stack of newspapers, which saves the equivalent of one forty-feet fir tree. Each year, 10 million tons of newspapers are thrown away in landfills. If all Americans would recycle, we could save up to 75 million trees in one year (1).
  • Reuse paper as scrap paper, or print it again on the other side, and then recycle for better paper saving. Also consider buying recycled paper from the start to cut your carbon footprint further.
  • Don't print your emails, order confirmations, bank statements, taxes, etc. to reduce paper usage. Instead, download the latest Adobe reader/writer for free to create documents in PDF format, which you can store as softcopy on your computer. It keeps the docs readable longer, saves you cabinet space, and spares many trees!
  • Put a stop to unsolicited mail to reduce paper waste:


  • 1. Get your name removed from mortgage, credit card, and insurance companies that send unwanted solicitation: opt out of pre-screened credit card offers.

    2. Register with the Direct Marketing Association to opt out of catalog and newsletter mailings: https://www.dmachoice.org/dma/member/home.action.

    3. You can also use http://www.catalogchoice.org/ to reduce paper usage by refusing unwanted catalog mailings.

The average US household receives 1.5 trees worth of junk mail every year - 100 million trees for all the US households combined!
