When shopping for paper for your home printer, there is a huge difference between paper that's made from 100% post-consumer material versus virgin stock. For example, did you know it takes 24 large trees to produce one ton of virgin paper? One ton of recycled paper takes 1.1 tons of waste paper to manufacture; that's 1.1 tons of paper diverted from landfills, re-pulped and remade into new paper. Plus, 100% post-consumer recycled paper requires 75% less water than virgin paper to be made. Recycled is clearly the greenest choice.
