Going Green in Ventura? Mobile Paper Shredding Can Help

Just as you do right by your employees and your neighbors in Ventura, mobile paper shredding lets you give back to the Earth.
Though it often takes a backseat to efforts such as carpooling, energy efficiency and green building practices, paper recycling plays a large role in conserving the planet’s resources. Paper production has environmental impacts throughout its entire lifecycle—from habitat destruction and air emission from logging machinery to the landfill space it occupies when disposed. In fact, recycling paper benefits the environment by:
• Promoting terrestrial carbon sequestration, which removes greenhouse gases from the atmosphere.
• Reducing the amount of methane (a greenhouse gas over 20 times as harmful as carbon dioxide) produced from landfills.
• Cutting down on aggregate air emissions from heavy machinery, trucks and other vehicles used for logging and paper pulp production.
• Conserves old growth forests and biodiversity.
The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that for each ton of paper that is recycled, we save 7,000 gallons of water, 3.3 cubic yards of landfill space, one metric ton of greenhouse gas emissions and enough energy to power the average American home for six months. Considering how much paper waste an office produces each year, the benefits that your provide for the environment by going green with mobile paper shredding can quickly add up.
