Choosing paper for purchase
No matter how well we conserve, we do use paper. Due to an error in ordering EpiCH was receiving sub-par paper, but we are back to the good stuff:
- 100% post-consumer (see extended entry) recycled content
- process chlorine free
"Recycled" products count any reuse of production waste. In other words, you could conceivably bring in all new wood, make a 10 foot wide roll, cut the middle 5 feet into sheets, 'recycle' the 5 feet of 'waste' back through the cutting machine to generate sheets, and call the paper 50% recycled.
"Recycled post-consumer" means that it was bought and made its way back through the recycling system to a manufacturer.
