Sustainability of Badger Paperboard Products

Badger Paperboard focuses on global environment responsibility. We are attentive to using recycled materials and recycling materials. Ultimately, we want to help protect your products in the most eco-friendly way. 

Paper makes up 29 percent of municipal solid waste (MSW), more than any other material Americans throw away. According to the American Forest and Paper Association, nearly 80 percent of America’s paper mills are designed to use paper collected in recycling programs, and they depend on paper recycling to supply the raw materials they need to make new paper.(http://www.epa.gov/osw//conserve/materials/paper/index.htm)
 
Why recycle? Recycling 1 ton of paper saves an average of 7,000 gallons (26,495 liters) of water; 3.3 cubic yards (2.5 cubic meters) of landfill space; 3 barrels of oil (1 barrel equals 42 gallons); 17 trees; and 4,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity (enough energy to power the average home 6 months)
