Reuse Waste Paper

Europe, North America, and Japan combined are home to just 20% of the world’s population but swallow up 63% of its paper and cardboard. Increasing consumption of these products is relentless: the wealthiest countries use 3 times as much paper today than they used in the 1960s. By 2010, the volume of paper used worldwide could increase by as much as 50%.

To avoid contributing to overconsumption, cut back on your paper use, and keep reusable paper products, such as manila envelopes and file folders. Cut scrap paper into quarters and use it to write phone messages rather than buying a new pad. And recycle all eligible paper and cardboard products.

At BAI, we’ve stopped printing out report cards and receipts, and we’re trying to go as paperless as we can. We recycle all our used paper and we’ve also worked alongside a recycling company so that they can recycle all our used books and office paper.

Recyle Your Paper
