Every ton of recycled office paper purchased saves 17 trees. It also saves 2 barrels of oil, 4,100 kilowatts of energy, 3.2 cubic yards of landfill space and 60 pounds of pollution. If all paper was recycled then we could save 100 million tons of wood every year. This is because Americans use an average of 650 tons of paper a year. For the 17 trees saved by every ton of recycled paper used, those trees can absorb 250 pounds of carbon dioxide each year. Newspapers also account for a large number of trees cut down. If every newspaper in America was made on recycled paper we could save 250 million trees from being cut down, which would reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in the air by a great deal.
