We manufacture sustainable paper and wood products from renewable resources that are used every day by millions of people. To that end, we support policies that help our industry grow, create jobs, and foster global market competition so we can continue to provide these essential products.
We support education on recycling best practices as one of the top ways to increase the quantity and improve the quality of paper in the recycling stream. Paper mills want used paper products back so they can turn them into new and innovative products.
