Did you know that the most important source of biodiversity on the planet – the rainforest  – is being decimated so that you can have paper towels to wipe up? Did you know that the paper industry is the 4th largest emitter of greenhouse gases? Without those rainforests  to suck up that extra carbon, we’re going to be in a bad state! Learn more about the Secret Life of Paper  with Inform, Inc.’s  informative and rousing video (after the jump).
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.
