Is recycling paper ever not as efficient as making new paper?

    There are a lot of frequently-circulated myths, especially on the Internet, claiming that recycling common materials actually saves little or no energy. This is not true: recycling programs for most materials save significant amounts of energy, and paper is no exception. Recycled paper requires about 60% less energy to produce than paper made from scratch; it also saves 7,000 gallons of water for every ton of recycled paper produced. Recycling paper and buying paper made from recycled content is a great way to save both energy and natural resources.
