Earlier Inhabitat’s Emily Pilloton highlighted the insightful video ‘The Secret Life of Cell Phones’ produced by environmental nonprofit INFORM, Inc. Now we are pleased to show another of their enlightening videos, The Secret Life of Paper. It explores the environmental impact of the paper production industry, focusing upon forest destruction, global warming, and the complexities of paper recycling.
The video is part of INFORM‘s Secret Life Series, which explores the environmental effects of everyday consumer items. The Secret Life of Paper details the environmental impact of the paper industry and suggests solutions to our paper consumption problem. It also addresses many complex questions surrounding paper recycling: Where does paper go when you recycle it? Why should you change your paper habits? What alternate types of sources are used for papermaking? What can you do to reduce your paper footprint? How do you recycle paper?
