Products Utilized

According to the EPA, recycling provides an annual benefit of 49.7 million metric tons of carbon equivalent emissions reduced, comparable to removing 39.4 million passenger cars from the road each year.

Interestingly, items diverted for recycling don’t always remain in the United States. The number one U.S. export by volume is scrap paper, which travels by container ships to Asia and Mexico. Scrap metal was also among our most valuable exports last year.

The scrap paper does help these nations conserve more of their forests, but as a result we lose some of ours. America’s southeastern forest – what Hershkowitz calls “the most biologically diverse forest in the world” – is still being used to make paper.

“That’s the downside of our paper exports, that we are not replacing the destruction of southeast forests with recycled fiber,” he said.

We continue to look for ways to reduce our carbon footprint and lessen our impact on the environment.  There are clearly more things we could and possibly should be doing.  We welcome any suggestions on what else we might be able to implement.
