Paper Recycling Near Me
It is difficult to imagine our daily personal or work lives without paper. Most of us use paper products every day at work. Schools also use tons of paper products every day. We have begun to digitize more and more of our personal and professional lives but we still produce lots of paper and paper bi-products. One issue we face worldwide is that paper continues to be a problem due to lack of proper recycling.
How often do we ball up paper or junk mail and throw it in the trash. I know I am guilty of this at times as we all are. The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) estimates that paper and cardboard waste account for about 1/4th of all generated waste in North America. The percentages in less developed countries are significantly higher. What does this mean? We are cutting down way more trees than we are replacing at a very unsustainable rate.
We are helping with the problem. Embassy Records recycles paper that is shredded. The shredded paper heads of to a paper mill after a shred company or shredding service is used. After it reaches the mill it goes through a hot water process that removes all glues, dies, staples etc. After this process is completed all the recycled shredded paper is turned into paper towels, napkins, tissues and many other items including recycled office paper.
This recycled process is significantly less invasive to our environment compared to harvesting live trees. Recycling paper (compared to virgin wood harvesting) reduces water use by 36% and reduces air pollution by 75% compared to paper made by harvesting trees. We are literally helping to save our planet one paper bale at a time. Use a shredding service near me to help. Every little bit helps to reduce our carbon footprint.
