Paper cannot be continually recycled indefinitely. The fibbers weaken and the recycled paper can no longer be broken down into the fibber strands used to produce new paper.
Savings: Every ton of paper that is recycled saves 17 trees, 7,000 gallons of fresh water, and enough energy to heat a home for 6 months.
