Two Sides has released a new fact sheet on the Canadian paper and paper-based packaging industry, addressing public perceptions and facts when it comes to related environmental topics, such as forestry, greenhouse gas emissions and recycling.
The fact sheet follows a recent Two Sides survey, which found that Canadian consumers rank pulp and paper products as a leading cause of deforestation, which they are not. In fact, the Canadian paper and paper-based packaging industry is one of the most sustainable industries in the world, notes Two Sides.
In the new fact sheet on the sustainability of the Canadian paper and paper-based packaging industry, Two Sides provides several facts from credible third-party sources that inform consumers. Some facts include:
- Deforestation refers to the conversion of forest to other land uses, and does not include areas where trees have been removed due to harvesting or logging, and where the forest is expected to regenerate (UN Food and Agriculture Organization, 2020).
- Canada recycles nearly 70 per cent of its paper and cardboard, making it one of the top paper-recycling countries in the world (Forest Products Association of Canada, 2020).
