Did you know that every year in the USA 24 billion newspapers are circulated and 6.4 million tons of paper are sent to households as junk mail? The USA accounts for a shocking 30% of global paper consumption, which is an enormous amount of trees! The average office worker burns through approximately 10,000 pieces of paper every year – which is a pretty disturbing statistic.
