Recycle Week 2019

Did you know the UK uses over 12 million tonnes of paper a year and that over two thirds of this paper is recycled?

Recycling paper has some strong environmental benefits that make it worth considering for private and business use alike. For starters, recycling paper means you help to reduce gas emissions that play a strong part in climate change. This is because recycling creates lower demand for new paper that involves cutting down trees, transporting the wood and making the paper.

It uses 70% less energy and water to recycle paper than to create new paper from trees.  Manufacturing that uses recovered paper also cuts down on pollution that leads to smog and health problems.

Here at Restore Datashred we shred every bit of paper we collect and are proud to shred and recycle 80,000 tonnes of paper annually.

For every single tonne of paper we shred we save:

  • 17 trees 

  • 4200 Kilowatts - the equivalent of an average household’s YEARLY usage! 

  • 32,000 litres of water - That’s enough water to fill 1,024 Olympic swimming pools every year! 

  • 600kgs of CO2 - the equivalent of driving a car non-stop for 23.31 hours.

That’s pretty good going we think!

By shredding with Restore Datashred you can greatly improve your carbon footprint and take another step to becoming an environmentally friendly business. 

But wait, it’s not only paper we can help you with! Did you know we can also securely destroy and recycle textiles, hard drives, media and WEEE items? We shred and recycle 100,000 tonnes of material ever year so you can rest assured your material is in safe and experienced hands.
