Top Reasons to Go Paperless
- Paper generally makes up to 70% of office waste with 10,000 A4 sheets used for every worker each year.
- Paper recycling rates vary substantially from country to country, e.g. Switzerland 85%, USA 51%, New Zealand 73% and Australia 8%.
- Every tonne of paper recycled saves almost 13 trees, 4,100 kilowatts of electricity and more than 30,000 litres (7,900 gallons) of water.
- Our planet is still losing at least 16.2 million hectares (40 million acres) of forests through logging and land clearing.
