Detailed Information:
Wood is the poorest material to use for paper making. Not only are there plenty of better materials available, but most of these available materials are now discarded as waste, such as agricultural material, and industrial rag. A pulp and paper mill recycling these materials would be an immense commercial success, and relieve pressure on the last few trees remaining on the earth (half of all trees harvested are chipped up for pulp).
