Who cares where paper comes from? (green Views).
My bugbear is the green element doesn't realise the fact that the paper industry is the only renewable and recyclable industry we have. What other industry has renewable raw material, a process that reuses its cooking chemicals and has useful and sellable by-products of that process? The waste energy (steam) used from the electrical turbines also used in the cooking process is reused in the drying process; the transport water is used time and time again and the final product is biodegradable and recyclable.
Where is the paper for this magazine produced?
J Van Der Meer Traralgon, VIC
Exhaustive research has been undertaken to find the most environmentally sound paper to print Habitat on. Cyclus Matt is 100 per cent recycled post-consumer waste, made in Denmark. We would love to use an Australian-made, genuine 100 per cent recycled paper, however, none exists at this stage.
