AF&PA Wins Award for Improving Paper Recycling Video
The American Paper and Forest Association and PaperRecycles.org created a lively video about paper recycling, which won a 36th Annual Bronze Telly Award (the annual Telly Awards program honors excellence in broadcast and online video content). The video promotes increased quantity and quality of paper and paper-based packaging recovered for recycling.
AF&PA recently announced that 65.4 percent of all paper consumed in the U.S. was recovered for recycling in 2014. The industry has set a goal to exceed 70 percent paper recovery by 2020 as part of its Better Practices, Better Planet 2020 sustainability initiative.
