Course: ERS 285, 1994
Supervisor: James Kay

Abstract

It has been made apparent that the University of Waterloo's paper consumption habits are not sustainable. It is thus advised that UW give strict attention to the ideals of bioregionalism, long-term environmental feasibility, and of being involved in a closed-loop system. The most important suggestions are that the University, as a whole, reduces the amount of paper it consumes, realizes the need to use "truely" recycled products, and demand change in the current forestry practice which support the paper industry. A variety of guidelines for approaching sustainable paper consumption practices on campus are outlined below.
