Recycling 1 ton of paper saves 17 mature trees

 

We are starting one of our largest document shredding projects ever!  SAFESHRED will be shredding away 350,000 boxes over the course of a 3-4 months.  That’s about 6500 tons of paper (13 million pounds)!  So according to EPA calculations we can save…

  • 110,500 mature trees
  • 2,470,000 gallons of oil
  • 21,450 cubic yards of landfill space
  • 26,000,000 kilowatts of energy (sustains 3250 American homes for a year)
  • 45,500,000 gallons of water (sustains 415 American homes for a year)

We are very excited to see this project through and looking at these numbers makes us proud about what we can do to help keep our earth green.
