Celebrating Forests

We all know the benefits of forests - that they absorb carbon, help oxygenate the planet, prevent soil erosion and cool the earth. Earlier this month, Domtar joined the world in celebrating the noble tree on International Day of Forests. Hear from Domtar's vice president of sustainability and communications on the importance of forests, and what the company is doing to ensure they continue to thrive.


Why Can't All Paper Be 100% Recycled? 

Paper is one of the most recycled products on the planet. But if not all paper can be made from 100% recycled fiber, what should we use?  And how is the average consumer to know when they should buy products made with recycled content vs. new wood fiber? Domtar's senior manager of sustainability performance optimization helps answer these important questions. 


Investing in Conservation Education

School districts often have a multitude of needs, but a custom forest management plan? Learn how, along with support from Domtar's Johnsonburg, PA mill, the Bald Eagle Area School District is investing in a sustainable future by boosting its forestry curriculum without any up-front costs.


Did You Know? 

Domtar pulp and paper products are fully compliant with the U.S. Lacey Act to prevent the importation of illegally harvested wood.
Everyday Sustainability 
Consider passive heating, which uses the sun's energy to keep heating costs down.  Simply leave the draperies and shades of south-facing windows open during the day to allow sunlight to enter, and closed at night to reduce the chill. Source:
