Paper is a biodegradable, compostable, renewable, sustainable product made from trees. Growing and harvesting trees provides jobs for millions of men and women. Working forests are good for the environment, providing clean air, clean water, wildlife habitat and carbon storage.

Here are a few facts and figures on how green paper is:

The size of EU forest land has increased by approx. 30% since 1960, or more than 1.5 million football pitches annually. Approximately 98% of European forests are covered by a sustainable management plan. For every tree felled in Europe, 3 or 4 are planted in its place. Paper fibres can be recycled and reused up to 7 times.

More than 60 million tonnes of used paper (67%) is collected and recycled every year in Europe. More than 50% of the pulp used for making paper & board in Europe is recovered paper. 2005 EU forest growth was 770 million cubic metres (m³); total fellings were 446 million m³; only 150 million m³ were used for paper making.
