What is Paper Pulp and How Does it Help the Environment?

Paper pulp is the raw ingredient used to make paper. The process of paper Waste Recycling involves mixing used paper with water to break it down. It is then chopped up and heated, which breaks it down further into strands of cellulose, a type of organic plant material, this resulting mixture is called pulp. It is strained through screens, which remove any glue or plastic that may still be in the mixture then cleaned, de–inked, bleached, and mixed with water. Then it can be made into new paper. The same fibres can be recycled about seven times, but they get shorter every time and eventually are strained out.

Recycling paper might seem like a small contribution to the overall problem of pollution and the environment. We need to start easing the burden on landfills. Recycling offers a boost in the economy by providing thousands of jobs and saving costs on manufacturing new goods. One main source of economic benefits resulting from recycling plastics involves a reduced cost in materials for new goods.

Recycled paper is better for the environment than virgin paper. It helps preserve forests, because it reduces demand for wood. It conserves resources and generates less pollution during manufacturing, because the fibres have already been processed once. Paper pollution is another effect of paper waste and it's a serious problem. Chlorine-based bleaches are used during production which results in toxic materials being released into our water, air and soil. When paper rots, it emits methane gas which is 25 times more toxic than CO2.

There are so many products that could be made from recycled paper.

  • Toilet Paper
  • Tissues
  • Printer and copier paper
  • Paper Towels
  • Paperboard (cereal and cracker boxes)
  • Egg cartons
  • Newspapers
  • Grocery bags

These items are to name just a few things that can be done with recycled paper. You can contact SA Zero Waste today for you paper waste management solutions.

Why Recycle?

Today, it can be quite time consuming for most of us to make sure that we are recycling and being environmentally conscious. But there has to come a time and place in one's life to realize to why recycle. Here are a few good reasons why everyone should start recycling.

  1. Recycling reduces excessive waste.
    To recycle gives the opportunity to a "second life" to materials like paper, plastics, glass, etc. By Diverting all these materials, we conserve landfill space and reduce pollutants such as methane gas and leachate.
  2. Recycling conserves resources
    Everything we purchase and use came from a material extracted from somewhere on the earth. Extraction of resources destroy the ecosystem and uses a lot of energy and water, but with recycling materials are being reused and reduced for the need for further extraction.
  3. Recycle to tackle climate change
    Reducing our waste, reduces greenhouse gas emissions, such as methane, carbon dioxide and nitrous oxide. Extraction, manufacturing and transportation of raw materials also cause global greenhouse gas emission, so by utilizing recycled materials requires less energy, which reduces emission and fights climate change.
  4. Recycle to save energy
    It takes less energy to manufacture a product from recycled materials than to manufacture a product from raw materials because the raw materials require more processing and refining than recycled materials. They should also be extracted, which uses an exceptional amount of energy. Using recycled materials also uses energy, but considerably less than the process for raw materials.
