University of Maryland Begins Using Recycled Paper in Magazines

University of Maryland

University of Maryland has begun using 10% recycled content on Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified paper for its magazines. This progress is thanks to all the Green Americans who took action with Green America’s One Million Trees campaign, which urges colleges and universities across the country to begin using recycled paper for their alumni magazines.

If all higher education institutions used readily available recycled paper options, we could save up to one million trees, 90 million pounds of carbon dioxide emissions and 16,000 tons of solid waste every single year.

We hope to see UMD build on its use of 10% recycled content and continue with a purchasing preference for responsible papers (recycled and Forest Stewardship Council Certified content) for years to come.
