Renewable materials company, Stora Enso has announced that they are closing down a couple of their paper mills.
The loss of jobs should not be ignored, but the move is a good one for its environmental benefits.
The goal of going paperless has been around for a few decades. It meets resistance as some readers just prefer to read things on paper, like the texture of it and it might be better for you anyway.
With environmental demands hotting up, unless sustainable paper productions methods are developed at scale and to the required standard, then people will be throwing their paper recycling baskets in to one of their other recycling baskets.
