Just a question about carbon sequestration in virgin fibre. I have compared the carbon footprints of a 100% recycled paper (Evolve Everyday) and a virgin paper Xerox laserprint. They had a similar footprint size overall (220 and 200 kg/t respectively). However the virgin embedded 1270 kg CO2/t. Would this suggest that as long as its not burnt at disposal, vigin fibre (from a well managed source) is better than recycled?
