Healthy Printing - About Paper Recycling

Key finding

Paper & Paperboard

are not infinitely recyclable

The cellulose fibres that make up paper shorten during the recycling process, reducing their strength. In theory, paper and paperboard materials could be recycled up to 6 or 7 times, before the fibres break down too much. Because of the loss of strength, businesses can run into challenges when using fully recycled paper and cardboard.
