Every year, the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) celebrates World Environment Day on June 5th. It has taken the responsibility to raise awareness about the various environmental issues and call for action. Like each year, the theme for this year is ‘Sustainable consumption and production’.
The theme has been chosen for a purpose to make us realize about the declining natural resources each day. We all need to pause for a moment and examine our lifestyle. Are we using the planet’s natural resources responsibly? Are we taking any positive environmental action to sustain the natural resources? Take for e.g. the use of paper in offices or in our day-to-day lives. The number of trees that have to be cut in order to provide paper is countless.
Let’s look at some of the startling facts:
1. 93% of paper comes from trees.
2. 50% of the waste of businesses is composed of paper.
3. Recycling 1 ton of paper saves around 682.5 gallons of oil, 26,500 liters of water and 17 trees.
4. Every tree produces enough oxygen for 3 people to breathe.
5. Pulp and paper is the 3rd largest industrial polluter of air, water and soil. Chlorine-based bleaches are used during production which results in toxic materials being released into our water, air and soil. When paper rots, it emits methane gas which is 25 times more toxic than CO2.
Save Trees! Save the planet Earth. Trees have always been a great source of maintaining the overall health of an ecosystem. You can contribute to the environment by reducing the amount of paper used in our daily lives.
