Planet Ark Paper

As the saying goes, unless you're buying recycled, you're not really recycling. You are only doing half the job. About 68% of office paper is recycled but less than 18% of new reams contain any recycled paper.

Some people still think that recycled paper is of a lower quality to virgin paper, which is a hang over from when it first appeared decades ago. The good news is that technology has moved on to the point that most paper users couldn't tell the difference between new and recycled paper in either performance or appearance.

Use the positive feelings generated by the Fling to encourage your workplace to swap to a high-recycled content - 50%, 80% or 100% - Australian made recycled paper to close the recycling loop and finish the job.
