68% of paper and paper packaging is recycled into new products, great to know for the 61% of U.S. consumers who prefer their news in print.
Paper recovery for recycling is a national success because of the commitment millions of Americans make each day to recycling at home, at work, or at school. Newspaper recycling is a big part of this overall success as nearly 70 percent of old newspapers are recycled into new newsprint, boxboard and other products.
Two Sides, a global resource to promote the sustainability of print and paper in North America and in five continents around the world, has created an ad that News Media Alliance members can use to inform readers about printed newspaper recycling efforts.
News Media Alliance members are provided the ad at no additional cost. You may download the PDF ad in quarter- and full-page sizes below.
