BBC Report, Use More Paper - Help Save The Planet

I’ve been saying it for years, along with the argument that virgin paper is better for the environment than recycled when the carbon footprint of collecting and repulping waste material is taken into account, versus the sustainable forestry code of planting 3 new trees for every one felled for paper manufacture, and the fact that the vast majority of recycled paper used in the UK is now imported, adding additional environmental impact to that of manufacturing alone, following the near death of the once strong UK paper manufacturing industry, due in no small part to government short sightedly specifying recycled paper for the majority of their print requirements.

A pet subject of mine, in case you hadn’t noticed.
