Ever wonder what a responsibly managed forest looks like? Take a tour of the independently certified forests that supply Domtar's manufacturing base with a source of sustainable wood fiber. These lands in New Hampshire and South Carolina are just two examples of forests we source from to help make the products you rely on every day.
 
How do you celebrate Arbor Day in epic fashion? Have nearly 200 of your friends take to Twitter for a lively discussion on responsible forest management! Last month over 1.5 million people got a glimpse of a thought-provoking #ForestryChat conversation lead by Domtar, P&G and the NGO community. View the recap and get tips on doing your part to help forests thrive.
 
This month it was announced that 67.2% of paper consumed in the U.S. was recovered for recycling in 2016 - an all time high. As the industry marches towards maximum recovery, risks could derail these efforts. An example: single-stream collection, which often results in bins full of garbage, not recyclables.
 
Did You Know?
Paper was invented in China around the year 105 A.D., but the technology was kept a secret for many years. 
 
 
Everyday Sustainability
A job after work is healthy and fun, but your computer doesn't need to run after hours. A computer left running 24/7 is wasting energy, even with a screensaver. Power down your device or ensure it enters sleep mode once you leave the office.
