I get on the bus, stamp my ticket, and look over the documents for tomorrow's meeting. I grab two theater tickets - they are changing the posters. I pick up my mail. ¡Oh no! I see the prescription and realize I forgot to stop by the pharmacy. I put the receipt from the dry cleaner's on the counter, and look at the manual for the new DVD recorder. Wow, paper is everywhere! Multiplied by all of the cities, the people, the companies, the countries... What are the effects of so much paper consumption? Is it really true that the digital age is reducing the amount of paper we consume? Here you will find the answers to those questions and others you may not have considered.
