The production and use of paper has a number of adverse effects on the environment which are known collectively as paper pollution. Globally, pulp and paper is probably is the third largest industrial polluter to air, water, and land and releases well over 100 million kg of toxic pollution each year. Therefore, the environmental impact of paper is significant. Worldwide consumption of paper has risen by 400% in the past 40 years, with 35% of harvested trees being used for paper manufacture. Paper waste like other wastes faces the additional hazard of toxic inks, dyes and polymers.
The hazards are further enhanced when the waste is mixed together with other solid waste and thrown into open areas within the shanty dwellings.
We are a NIL contributor to the creation of an adverse polluted environment. Furthermore, we only focus on waste from the corporate sector and do not procure paper waste that come out of municipal waste. The latter can contribute to environmental hazards. Though the profit margins are higher, yet we are not willing to pollute the environment.
It is a SEWN promise that in the event if we get into the Recycling of Paper waste, then the maximum investment will be made in pollution control technology and processes!
