What is a Papertarian?

Shark Shredding Recycling Logo

Did you know that when you personally or your office uses a professional shredding company that the paperwork shredded is 100% recycled? When recycled properly, one ton (2,000 lbs) can help save up to 17 trees from being processed into paper products. Paper can actually be recycled up to 7 times and turned into napkins, toilet paper, and paper towels.

This Earth Day we are making efforts to let others know about leading a papertarian life. What is a papertarian? According to the Paper & Packaging Board A papertarian is someone who lives a paper-based lifestyle. From choosing paper products to practicing proper recycling, papertarians understand the positive impact that small, everyday choices have on our forests and the environment.”

Shark Shredding's line of secure shredding units for daily office use.

One step your office can do to be more papertarian, is utilizing a document shredding service like our scheduled shredding service or our one-time purge service. Our scheduled shredding service comes to your facility on a regular basis to service the locked security bin for your everyday paperwork to be properly destroyed. Not only does using a Professional Shredding Service help your office recycle and reduce its carbon footprint, but it also saves your employees time all while keeping your confidential business information secure. Saving your business labor, space, and increases your green efforts!

Remember, clicking “Print” on your computer or using paper isn’t a crime. The paper you use will be recycled and when you recycle your paper, you’re helping the Earth and our future generations. Happy Earth Day!
