Ever wonder how green is when we recycle paper? Here are some facts 🙂
For every 1 tonne of paper we recycle we
- save 17 mature trees
- 7,000 gallons or 26,500 liters of water!
- 3 cubic yards of landfill
- 2 barrels or 318 liters of oil – you can make 4 trips from Johor Bahru to Bukit Kayu Hitam!
- 4,100 KWatts of electricity – enough to power average malaysian house for 9 months!
Recycling paper instead of making it from new material generates 74 percent less air pollution and uses 50 percent less water.
So how many is 1 tonne of paper? it’s about 400 ream of 80 gsm paper or about 200,000 80gsm sheets!
Just think about it 😉
