Paper and the environment

Consideration of the environment is not a new thing in the world of print and paper. As an industry our success has always been reliant on the sustainabilty and availability of paper and the forests that produce them.

It has been popular in recent years to claim that the use of paper and by association print is in someway environmentally unfriendly. Think again.

Consider that by using paper you are supporting a commercial industry who have a major interest in planting trees and maintaining forests. In fact in Europe, where 94% of the paper we use comes from, forests are increasing by an area four times the size of London every year.

For our part we at Macaulay Scott recycle all our waste paper and print chemicals and have done since the 70's.
