About Paper Waste

Paper waste is an easy place to start discussing waste, because simply put, there's absolutely no reason for it.

All paper, newspaper and cardboard are completely recyclable, and recycling them not only saves trees and landfill space, it also saves oil, energy, water, and thus money. And yet paper alone makes up 40 percent of the U.S.'s waste, and paper and cardboard combined make up 73 percent. Once in a landfill, paper takes over 50 years to decompose.

Almost all communities in the United States have paper recycling in their businesses and neighborhoods, so it simply comes down to people giving paper a moment of thought before putting it in the trash. Taking a moment to consider your trash before discarding it is no small thing, it's a life style and thought process change on a daily level, but a really important one.

Gradually Green is addressing this issue in a series of public happenings, which will take place in Birmingham, MI over the next few months (starting October 2006). Upon execution, these happenings will be documented here in their own pages under the Happenings branch of this web site.
