If everyone in the U.S. recycled just 1/10 of their newsprint,
we would save the estimated equivalent of about
25 million trees a year.
Every ton of paper used for recycling saves:
3000 - 4000 KWh electricity (enough for an
average 3 bedroom house for one year)
Everyday Americans buy 62 million newspapers and throw out 44 million.
That is the equivalent of dumping 500,000 trees into a landfill every week.

American's throw away enough office and
writing paper annually to build a wall 12 feet
high stretching from Los Angeles to New York City.

One tree can filter up to 60 pounds of pollutants from the air each year.
One ton of recycled paper saves 3,700 pounds of lumber and 24,000 gallons of water.
