Paper: indispensable but resource intensive

Even though our world becomes increasingly digitalized, paper continues to make our lives more comfortable: it is a very valuable product!

We do not only use paper to print or write on, but also for the gift wraps around our birthday presents, the package around our favourite food (or basically any product we buy and use), the magazines, novels and cookbooks we read in, the greeting cards we send to our beloved ones, and so on….

At the same time, the paper industry has a resource-intensive nature:

| Of the paper produced today, 93% comes from trees

| To produce one paper greeting card out of trees, you need 2.5 litres of water.

| The chemicals used to bleach and process the paper are harming the environment.

Fortunately, the industry is constantly evolving and innovating, and various sustainable solutions have been discovered.
