Paper Consumption Presentation

  1. 1. PAPER CONSUMPTION <br />Vernika Moore, Cecilia Aiken, Byron Johnson, Levar Pitts <br />
  2. 2. Paper In The U.S.<br />
  3. 3. Paper in the U.S. <br />In the U.S. alone we consume 99,778,437 tons of paper<br />Does anyone know how much that is per person? <br />Only 10% of the paper we consume in a year is preserved<br />Recovery of all printing/writing papers is 41.1%, but only 4.8% recovered paper goes back into making recycled printing and writing paper <br />
  4. 4. Paper in the U.S. <br />
  5. 5. Paper in the U.S. <br />
  6. 6. Paper in the U.S. <br />
  7. 7. Paper in the U.S. <br />The Southern U.S. contains the most biologically diverse forests in North America and is the largest paper-producing region in the world<br />The paper industry is the largest consumer of forests in the Southern U.S., currently logging an estimated 5 million acres of forests each year.<br />While the Southern U.S. contains 31% of the nation’s timber inventories, it is harvesting 54% of the nation’s timber volumes <br />
  8. 8. The Paper Making Process<br />
  9. 9. The Impact of Paper-Making on the Environment<br />Fourth largest emitter of greenhouse gases.<br />Negative impacts of paper-making occur at three stages of the process:<br /> 1. Harvesting Trees for Fiber<br /> 2. Processing of wood fiber into pulp<br /> 3. The disposal of paper products at the end of usage.<br />
  10. 10. The Problem With the Way Wood Fiber Is Often Harvested<br />Depends on virgin wood based fibers to make the pulp that becomes paper.<br />Wood used comes from old growth and environmentally sensitive forests.<br />Unsustainable logging practices.<br />Illegal logging practices.<br />
  11. 11. Effects of Unsustainable Logging Practices <br />Degrade ecosystems<br />Release of stored carbon<br />Climate instability <br />
  12. 12. The Impact of Paper-Making<br />Energy Intensive<br />Requires large amounts of water<br />Releases about 212 million tons of hazardous substances into the air and water.<br />Uses toxic chemicals<br /> -Chlorine compounds<br />
  13. 13. Chlorine Compounds<br />Used in bleaching pulp to make paper whiter.<br />Creates harmful byproducts called “organochlorines,” which include dioxins and dioxin like compounds.<br /> -cancer<br /> -developmental damage<br /> -reproductive damage<br /> -immune system damage <br />
  14. 14. Reducing Paper Use<br />
  15. 15. Easy Ways to Reduce Paper Use <br />Change printer and copier settings and habits<br />Set narrow margins in all standard documents to be printed <br />Equip all printers and copiers to be able to duplex (double-sided print)<br />Install utilities and train staff in techniques to print just what is needed <br />
  16. 16. Easy Ways to Reduce Paper Use <br />Create, edit, distribute, and store documents electronically <br />Send and receive electronic faxes or fax-to-emails instead of paper faxes <br />Set up scanners to convert paper documents into electronic documents that can be searched and shared easily <br />Set up PDF software on all computers for creating electronic documents <br />Set up means of storing documents electronically instead of in filing cabinets. Saves space and makes it easier to locate documents in the future <br />Select and use on-screen editing tools in your electronic documents<br />Budget for multi-function or all-in-one machines. These will save on space, costs, energy and toxic production and end-of-life processes. <br />
  17. 17. Easy Ways to Reduce Paper Use <br />Distribute annual reports and marketing collateral in PDFs, HTML or eBooks. <br />Check your Web site to see what pages people most often print, print them yourself, and change them if they are printing on too many pages unnecessarily.<br />Collaborate using electronic documents <br />Use e-mail instead of memos and faxes. <br />Transfer documents on disk or through e-mail for editing and review. <br />
  18. 18. Easy Ways to Reduce Paper Use <br />Recycle Paper<br />Recycle paper<br />Buy recycled content paper<br />One big benefit you can save millions of trees.<br />
  19. 19. Easy Ways to Reduce Paper Use <br />Other<br />Use fax stick-on labels instead of cover sheets. <br />Use both sides of the sheet of paper, whether for copying or printing. <br />Provide half-size sheets for short memos and letters. <br />
  20. 20. Research <br />
  21. 21. Research <br />According to the average FAMU students use 3,978 tons of Paper<br />This equals to <br />67,926 Trees<br />1,511,640 gallons of oil<br />15,912,000 kilowatts of energy <br />27,846,000 gallons of water<br />Enough energy to power the average American home for 1,657.5 years <br />
  22. 22. Demographics<br />
  23. 23. Psychographics<br />Cohorts in the United States<br />Most college students are from the Millennial Generation (Generation Y)<br />97% of college students owned a computer<br />94% owned a cell phone <br />76% of students used instant messaging <br />
  24. 24. Library Benchmark<br />
  25. 25. Survey Results<br />
  26. 26. Survey Results <br />
  27. 27. Survey Questions <br />
  28. 28. Targeting the Message<br />
  29. 29. Targeting The Message<br />Almost 78% of FAMU students are Florida Residents <br />Generation Y currently falls under College Students<br />Let’s Go back and look at our research! <br />
  30. 30. Targeting the Message <br />The Southeastern United States is currently the largest paper-producer in the world<br />In what region is Florida located?<br />The message can be framed to appeal to students who family reside in Florida<br />What will happen when the paper industry starts eyeing that tree in your back yard? <br />
  31. 31. Targeting the Message <br />Generation Y<br />The Most Tech Savvy <br /> Large percent of Generation Y owns cell phones and computers<br />Why can’t we access notes, homework, e-books, etc. from these devices? <br />Applications such as Evernote are a great tool for taking notes<br />Homework for professors can be uploaded on blackboard or emailed<br />Students can replace textbooks with Kindle/Nook devices<br />
