I was sent a really interesting article today about how there is a misconception about going paperless. This article highlighted the fact that, while most companies want to promote paperless as a “green” technique or to save the trees, this isn't necessarily the best or only way to help the environment. Here are a few quick facts that stuck out to me:
Not only were these facts eye opening, but the impact of the local communities near forest areas from an economic standpoint are pretty substantial. The key to all of this information is that North America is creating well managed forests that also provide economic, environmental, and social benefits to the surrounding communities. By better understanding how and where everyday products, like paper, are sourced from are we can be better educated in making decisions that truly do make a positive difference on our environment.
