Paper Reduction in DA

We reduced our paper consumption by 9% since FY2008! This saved the department over $3,100 in avoided paper purchases last year.

We have also increased the amount of paper we purchase made with 100% recycled content. Buying 100% recycled paper saves:

  • 60-70% energy savings over virgin pulp
  • uses 55% less water
  • reduces water pollution by 35%
  • reduces air pollution by 74%
  • eliminates many toxic pollutants
  • Multnomah County Sustainability Liaisons coordinate sustainability efforts in their departments by acting as resources and advocates. Please contact them if you have questions, suggestions or would like to get involved.
