#DidYouKnow Recycling 1 ton of paper saves 17 mature trees, 7,000 gallons of water, 3 cubic yards of landfill space, and 2 barrels of oil. Every ton of paper recycled can save the energy equivalent of 165 gallons of gasoline. 17 trees can absorb a total of 250 pounds of carbon dioxide from the air each year.
Despite the popularity of concepts like a paperless economy and digital serves, every year countless trees will be facing the axes across the globe to meet the never-ending demand for paper.
Our consumerist attitude should be blamed for this as many of us don’t even spare a second thought about recycling or reusing them.
Paper is generated at gargantuan pace in India and a very tiny percentage of paper actually ends up being recycled in the country.
Lana Bhalta, a remote village at Baru Sahib has earned a name and won awards for cleanliness and recycling its waste. It also fulfills all the 43 norms set for winning the State award.
The Baru Sahib waste management team is trying its level best to tackle this insurmountable menace of paper waste by turning it into utility products. Apart from this, they are also providing a sustainable source of livelihood for many.
Recently, the Shimla Secretariat entrusted us with the task of recycling 15,720 kgs of their waste papers which will be reprocessed into 3930 cover files for their office.
Share & Spread to appreciate this wonderful initiative undertaken for better tomorrow!
