Recycle Your Paper! March 4th, 2011

If everyone in the U.S. recycled their newspapers (including the comics), we would save 500,000 trees every week. We can recycle all kinds of paper, cereal boxes, note paper, bags, newspaper, etc.

These are some of the benefits of recycling paper:

  • Conserves resources
  • Prevents emissions of many greenhouse gases and water pollutants
  • Saves energy
  • Supplies valuable raw materials to industry
  • Creates jobs
  • Stimulates the growth of greener technologies
  • Reduces the need for new landfills and incinerators
