- The United States consumes 30 percent of the world’s paper each year.
- Of the 741 pounds of paper used by the average American each year, close to 55 pounds is tissue paper (which includes paper towels, napkins, facial tissue, and toilet tissue).
- Even with recycling programs, a little more than one-third of the trash going into landfills is paper products. Paper towels are not recycled.
