100% Replanted for Businesses

Reduce your organization's paper footprint in 3 easy steps.

The average American office worker is estimated to use a sheet of paper every 12 minutes—a ream per person every two and a half working weeks—and to dispose of 100-200 pounds of paper every year.
— Forest Ethics, 2002

Rethinking the way your company uses paper can help your business as well as the environment. Using less paper is a proven method of trimming your bottom line, while a recycling and eco-friendly paper procurement program reduces pressure on global forests. However, no matter the amount of recycled paper used, trees are still cut down to create all the paper products that a company needs to perform effectively. Your company can take a leading step towards environmental corporate responsibility and replant the trees you use and generate a green company image.

How to Calculate Your Company's Paper Footprint

Use this calculator to translate pounds of paper into number of trees used. In about half of the spaces below you will enter the quantity of items, in the other half you will weigh one of each item and enter both the weight and quantity. A simple postal scale comes in handy! The idea is to be reasonably accurate, not perfect. It is not necessary to track every little item. If you run out of space in one particular category, use the "other" category. If you completely fill up one worksheet, we suggest you use a second form. 

Start small if you'd like - become 100% Replanted for just one department of your business, or begin by replanting for a particular item. For example, if you are a publisher, you may choose to replant for one particular book or line of books. We suggest you calculate by the year, though you may use a smaller time period if more appropriate. Need help? Please don't hesitate to contact us.
