This is a super video but there is a howler in there that could expose you to ridicule: the claim that global paper use is one BILLION tonnes per day. True figure is around one MILLION tonnes per day.

Still a frightening figure.

Thanks for spotting the mistake! We have now corrected the figure to 1 million tons.
