Paper can be

A sustainable

Resource, but….

DID YOU

KNOW

?

Although many paper products are made from responsible resources, some are not.

According ot a WWF report, although paper mills do utilise some of their own waste products as fuel, emissions ans pollution from paper mills can be significant.

According to the environmentalist and author of The Green Consumer Guide, Julia Hailes MBE, "a paper bag takes about the same amouint of oil to make as a plastic one. It is typically 6 times heavier and 10 times bulkier. This means it will need 10 times more lorries to transport, and they will use more fuel because of the extra weight. It will also almost certianly be only used once.

According to a UK Governemtn fact sheet, the UK uses 12.5 million tonnes of paper and cardboard every year. About one third of this is recycled. Which is great but it means two thirds is not!

We sell both paper and plastic/polythene products. Each have their own benefits and we have no axe to grind for either type.

However, before you believe any stories you hear that plastic is the root of all evil, bear in mind the facts.

Most of the products we sell are fully recyclable, so it is up to us as businesses and members of the public to recycle what we can, when we can, in a responsible manner.
