The Advantages of Paper Recycling For Your Business

Paper is one of the most common materials used in business, and it can also be one of the most wasteful. In the UK, we produce over 3 million tons of paper each year, and only about 65% of it is recycled. That means that a lot of paper ends up in landfills, where it can take hundreds of years to decompose. Recycling paper is a great way to reduce your environmental impact and save money.


Here are some of the advantages of paper recycling for your business:

Reduced waste

Reducing the amount of waste your business produces can improve your carbon emissions and sustainability. This makes you a much more valued employer and clients are more likely to choose your services if they know you are taking steps to be more eco-friendly. By recycling paper you are ensuring as little as possible goes to landfills and helps us to conserve natural resources.

Preserved energy

Recycled paper can be used to create new products, using less energy. This is because we no longer need to use raw materials. This is much better for the environment and can help lower the cost of recycled products.

Saved water

Not only does recycled paper help us save raw materials from being used unnecessarily, but it can also help us save water. It takes a lot less water to produce paper from recycled materials than it does raw materials. By helping the planet save water you can prove you are making steps towards being a more sustainable business.

Cost savings

Recycling paper can save your business money in a number of ways. For example, you can save money on paper costs by purchasing recycled paper. You can also save money on disposal costs by recycling paper instead of sending it to a landfill.

Improved public image

Recycling paper can improve your business's public image. Customers and clients are increasingly looking for businesses that are environmentally responsible, and recycling paper is a great way to show that you're committed to sustainability.
