Dell Sells on Recycled Paper

Dells marketing publications now use an average of 50 percent recycled content paper -- and in many publications up to 90 percent -- exceeding a five-year company goal to use 50 percent recycled content by 2009.

Dell estimates the increased recycled content paper is avoiding the use of nearly 35,000 tons of virgin fiber paper per year. That is the equivalent of saving more than 250,000 trees or more than the number of trees required to print three Sunday editions of the New York Times.

The company announced the results in New York City at a Boreal Forest and Paper Roundtable event organized by members of the Environmental Paper Network including the Green Press Initiative, ForestEthics, Markets Intiative, and Co-op America.
