Beyond Recycled Paper

For years, buying paper with a high percentage of post-consumer recycled content has been the be all and end all for publishers and other intensive paper users looking to go green. But research done by U.S. News & World Report for its April issue, the “Energy and Environment Guide,”  points the way to a more effective standard. All of the issue’s body stock will be on carbon-neutral paper with fiber that has been certified as being sourced from sustainably managed forests, and U.S. News will pay a small premium to offset the relatively minor greenhouse gas emissions produced during manufacturing. You can find the details here.
