Of all the paper produced in the United States, a staggering 90% is recycled. And each ton that is repurposed can save 17 trees, 380 gallons of oil, and three cubic yards of landfill space—in short, it helps the planet…a lot.
Paper is one of the most easily recycled materials used in everyday life. Not only are designated recycling points and trash cans available for paper, but a lot of paper nowadays is made from other recycled goods. Wood and recovered paper have strong fiber properties, meaning they can be reused several times and still keep their quality. Likewise, developments in recycling technology have enabled papermakers to use the fibers in completely new ways.
For us at Printing for Less, sustainability is a core part of how we operate. We care for the planet as much as we care for our customers, and we take steps to ensure that our paper is responsibly sourced and recycled. We also know that recycling isn’t always straightforward – there are sometimes caveats that prevent an item from being eligible. That’s why we’re addressing the common question “can you recycle paper with ink on it?”
