Unless you’re buying recycled, you’re only doing half the job. It’s all about closing the recycling loop. The more products you buy made from recycled materials the greater the environmental benefits and efficient use of natural resources. Australian made recycled products have even greater environmental benefits.
Some Australians have outdated views on the quality of recycled office paper but when more than 130 people were asked to choose between a sheet of 100% recycled Planet Ark Paper and a sheet of virgin paper, almost seven in ten were unsure or not confident to make a choice.
Choosing Australian made recycled office paper supports green jobs, keeps waste out of local landfills and reduces carbon emissions. Find out more about Planet Ark Paper.
Toilet paper is one of the most commonly available recycled products. If every Australian home switched to recycled toilet paper in just one bathroom it would save 55,000 tonnes of paper a year, which is enough to fill more than 40 Olympic swimming pools.
Planet Ark endorses Naturale Toilet Tissue which is Australian made and FSC certified. As they say it’s soft on you and soft on nature.
