Use paper products with post-consumer recycled content.

Angela Kim Dec 4, 2010

Recycling computer paper and printing double sided isn’t the only thing that is important-it’s also important to know where your school paper products are coming from.

Ask the principle or the person that chooses the paper supplies for your school if they’re buying products made with post-consumer recycled content. If they aren’t, use these resources on NRDC’s main site to create a presentation on why smart paper policies are good for business, or organize other students in a call for change.
