Responsible production and sustainable use of paper is a consciousness more necessary each day. Our culture is being transformed, so that the notion of the preciousness of the resources used for the production of paper, could be inherited by future generations.
According to the Akatu Institute, Each kilo of paper produced, takes 540 liters of water, and every ton of virgin paper produced twelve trees are felled.
