    There are several sustainable paper choices.

    1) Recycled Paper- Recycled paper is the best option because is uses fewer trees, less water and energy, and less pollution is generated. Often it is listed as post-consumer content. Recycled paper only makes me about 10% of the paper market. Therefore, in order to make paper more sustainable, we must demand more recycled paper.

    2) Forest Stewardship Council Certified ( Paper with this certification label comes from forests managed in an environmentally responsible manner.

    3) Use wood pulp alternatives- Paper is now made from hemp fiber, kenaf, flax, cotton, banana stalks and other plant based materials. These are more sustainable than paper and can be produced with less energy and chemicals. However, these types of paper are usually very expensive.
