    Forty MILLION TONS of paper is discarded each year in the United States.  That’s a little less than half of the overall paper used in the country each year – the U.S. uses about 85 million tons of paper and paperboard, and recycles about 45 million tons of that.  By most standards that is an excellent recycling rate, but it’s almost disheartening to know that “only” wasting forty million tons of paper is a good thing.
