How Paper Shredding Helps the Environment
How Your Organization Can Stay Safe, Compliant and Eco-Friendly
Organizations of any size will inevitably use a lot of paper—for packaging, documentation, information management, and so on. Perhaps your company has a strong policy on preventing wasted resources and discourages employees from printing documents and emails on paper unless absolutely necessary. Even so, there is bound to be a sizeable amount of paper generated that needs to be discarded. When you hire a certified shredding and data destruction company, not only do you safely destroy your confidential documents, but you also contribute towards achieving an environmentally-friendly world.
Why Paper Shredding is Important for the Environment
- Paper Shredding Leaves No Room for Breaches: When you throw paper into the recycling bin, you cannot be sure that unethical individuals won’t rummage through it to find and misuse confidential information. Instead, use a NAID AAA Certified shredding company that offers complete data destruction and recycles 100% of the destroyed paper.
- You Directly Save Trees with Paper Shredding: 100% of shredded paper is recycled, and turned into daily-use products like paper towels, kitchen towels, bath tissue, writing paper, egg cartons, lamp shades, shopping bags, and more. Recycling paper thus enables a sustainable environment. On the other hand, producing new paper comes at the cost of cutting more trees. It also uses 70% more energy and water than recycled paper and adds to pollution. Recycling just 1 ton of paper alone saves 17 trees and leaves more of them to absorb carbon dioxide, thus helping to purify the air we breathe.
- Responsible Choices Earn You Respect: Customers today not only want quality service and products, but also aim to make environmentally sensible choices. They are thus drawn to companies that exhibit social responsibility in this area. If your company is perceived as an eco-friendly organization that upholds sustainable business practices, you will earn greater respect from customers and this will reflect on your bottom line.
