Heidi Brock, President and CEO of the American forest and Paper Association (AF & PA), made the following statement on the U.S. paper and wood products industry and paper recycling during the covid-19 pandemic:
“Members of the American forest and Paper Association (AF & PA) remain resilient to the challenges posed by the continuing pandemic. They continue to work safely and diligently to create sustainable and innovative paper products for the circular economy.
“Like all sectors of the economy, paper makers are addressing the challenges posed by the continuing epidemic, including global and domestic supply chain problems, such as shipping bottlenecks and limited truck supply.
“Nevertheless, there are noteworthy data points, one of which is in the field of paper recycling, which is still a good trend. In July, the total paper recycling rate for recycling has increased by 8.9% so far this year, which is impressive. In the United States, about 80% of paper mills use some recycled paper fibers to make renewable products, such as office paper, packaging and packaging Bath and household paper products. This is proof for consumers who recycle these products, coupled with the impressive infrastructure investment our manufacturers are making.
