Robin Wood Steals the Show at PaperWorld

On January 24, forest conservation organization Robin Wood stole the show at the annual industry trade fair, PaperWorld, in Frankfurt, Germany, with a protest that included a giant banner reading, "We have a dream: PaperWorld 100% recycled."

Robin Wood's protest called on people to be less wasteful when using paper and to change over to recycled paper whenever possible, especially in offices. According to the press release, Europe is responsible for 1/4 of the world's paper consumption, and 1/2 of all trees cut worldwide are used to make paper. Robin Wood urged people in Germany to look for and purchase paper with the Blue Angel symbol as it is the most environmentally friendly on the market.
