Recycled paper is the best environmental choice.

  • "THE BOTTOM LINE: BUY RECYCLED.
    The environmental impacts of papermaking are undeniably complex, but the basic conclusion is simple: recycled paper is better for the environment than virgin paper. Switch to recycled paper, and use the highest level of postconsumer recycled content you can find. It's the right thing to do for the Earth."
    @ Environmental Defense Fund's Q&A on the Environmental Benefits of Recycled Paper

  • "Recycling uses much less energy, chemicals and water, and normally produces less pollution than processing virgin wood fibres.  Using papers made from recycled fibres also helps to promote and support collection and recycling systems for reusable paper materials that would otherwise go to landfill or incinerators."
