Our planet loses
15 billion trees a year

93% of paper is made from trees.

Paper is made by processing the wood and its fiber. It all starts by cutting down trees.

Our ecosystems and livelihood are at serious risk

One third of our global food supply is pollinated by bees. Simply put, bees keep plants and crops alive. Without bees, humans wouldn’t have very much to eat.

Adverse effects of deforestation has affected the population of bees who have been shown to be valuable pollinators of crops such as macadamias and mangos.

Ten billion business cards are printed each year

Eight billion of those will be thrown away within a week.

Paper production is one of the most resource-intensive and polluting of all manufacturing industries emitting harmful carcinogens such as bleaches and dioxins into our atmosphere and water bodies.

We are on the midst of Earth's 6th mass extinction

The current global extinction rate—50,000 species per year—is 1,000 times or more the natural rate, according to the International Union for the Conservation of Nature.

The main cause of this devastating loss of species is human activity, which accounts for the destruction of approximately 35.8 million acres of forestland every year.

Wood harvested for paper causes major destruction on our environment

Paper comprises 50% of business waste, 33% of municipal waste and 25% of waste going to landfills.

In landfills, paper decomposes and emits methane gas, a type of greenhouse gas that is 20x more potent than CO2.
