[GreenYes] Re: [Greenyes] Cost of Recycled Paper
Re: [Greenyes] Cost of Recycled Paper

From: Tyson Miller, Recycled Products Purchasing Cooperative

Yes, it is true that historically recycled paper costs more than virgin fiber paper. For the past 3 years deinked postconsumer recycled pulp has actually been cheaper than virgin softwood and hardwood pulp in the U.S. pulp market...thus from a cost of goods standpoint, recycled paper is cheaper to produce given current market conditions.

Our non-profit cooperative purchasing program for recycled paper has been successful at removing the price barriers to using recycled copy paper by using its purchasing volume to reduce copy paper prices. The Recycled Products Purchasing Cooperative was originally funded by the U.S. EPA and has converted over 350 members to using recycled paper.
