PaperCraft – Using Entrepreneurship to be a change catalyst.
PaperCraft is an entrepreneurial venture inspired by a philosophy where the overall goal is to reduce environmental degradation by designing and making available products made from materials that are healthy for both humans and the environment.
PaperCraft designs and makes Eco Friendly products that Save Trees and Reduce Pollution.
In today’s world, 90% of paper pulp is made of wood. Paper production accounts for about 35% of felled trees, and represents 1.2% of the world's total economic output. It has been estimated that reducing half the world’s paper consumption would avoid the harvesting of 20 million acres (80,000 km²) of forestland.
Loss of forests isn’t the only issue. Deforestation has released an estimated 120 billion tons of carbon dioxide (CO2), the major global warming gas, into the atmosphere. The pulp and paper industry is the third-largest industrial polluter, in both Canada and the U.S. alone releasing more than 220 million pounds of toxic pollution into the air, ground and water each year.
Already, too much of the world's forest areas have been converted to agricultural land. Encouraging more crops for industrial uses like paper and fuel will only increase the pressure to clear more forests.
Instead, using residues from crops grown for food can help revitalize farms by giving farmers a second income from their crops.
Centuries ago paper was made from various kinds of plant materials, such as cotton, hemp and others. Hemp was grown for the seeds, which were used to make high-quality food and industrial oil. The stalk was then used to make paper. Cotton has been used to make paper for hundreds of years. Some of the highest quality papers available on the market today still have what's called "rag" content, meaning cotton content.
Encouraged by individuals and organizations who believe it’s their environmental responsibility to use more agricultural residue fibres as paper substitute, PaperCraft is using Entrepreneurship as the change catalyst for environment friendly products
