Recycled Paper Taking Over?

Paper has many purposes in today’s society as our need for printing grows. Though, what many may not realize, is that virgin paper goes through a process that is harmful to the planet while also requiring more resources to produce. Recycled paper is better than virgin paper because it doesn’t harm the environment and takes far fewer resources to create. For example, about two tons of wood is used to produce one ton of virgin paper. While about 1.2 tons of recycled paper is used to produce cocoon paper. It also requires 35,000 fewer liters of water to make recycled paper. Though using recycled paper isn’t only useful for the environment.
