Use Paper, Save the Planet

As an industrial designer, and design strategist, I am a prolific user of paper. Whether it is for my latest product design, or synthesis of research, my work area is littered with ideas on letter, tabloid, and Post-its. Until recently I didn’t think this usage could help save the planet. However, paper can be made through sustainable practices that do little harm. We can certainly use and enjoy the richness and resolution of paper without guilt. However, exploring how paper is produced and recycled, I found using paper to write, draw, and print can actually be done for the benefit of the Earth.
