Introducing "The Paper Planet"


Thanks for reading the inaugural post of "The Paper Planet", a new project of the Environmental Paper Network (EPN). On this site, leading environmental advocates from around the world will share tidbits, tools, tech, and tales of triumph and tragedy as society tackles one of its most challenging, and important, production and consumption issues. The pulp and paper industry is a leading contributor to global warming, a major driver of deforestation, and a top polluter of our water. Nevertheless, paper plays an important role in our society, and has and will continue to spread knowledge and culture across the planet. We touch it 100 times a day. Its everywhere, and even in our technological age we use it more and more. But even now, alternatives are available and change is possible. Right now, there are good businesses to support, creating paper with all the quality and variety that we all love to hold, but produced in a more environmentally sustainable manner. We hope you will join us on this journey as we enter an age of sustainability solutions and transform the pulp and paper industry in order to protect life on this earth as we know it.

I think we should use more e-book, tablets etc to reduce paper production and prevent global warming.
