Every day, over 3,000 tons of paper towel waste is produced in the US alone.
The average person uses 2,400 – 3,000 paper towels at work in a given year. . .
Decomposing paper towels in landfills produce methane gas, which is a leading cause of climate change.
Composting keeps paper towels out of landfills. Just one ton of recycled/composted paper saves 3,700 pounds of lumber or 17 trees and 24,000 gallons of water.
So… please recycle and/or compost your paper waste at home and at work!
When you compost and recycle, you help protect Mother Earth by decreasing green house gas emissions, conserving resources and saving energy!
