Paper is too valuable to waste. Film by the Environmental Paper Network, a coalition of 140 NGOs sharing a vision for the future of paper.

What can I do?

  • Individuals: Save paper at home and at the office
  • Businesses: Buy responsibly-produced paper for my business & make my pulp/paper business more sustainable

Why save paper? 

Paper usage in many parts of the word is on the rise. Expanding production and pulp wood harvesting threatens some of the last remaining natural forests and the people and wildlife that depend on them.

The world´s paper hunger also significantly contributes to climate change.
