Print Pirate is a small, independent, printing company, based in Birmingham, UK. We believe in investing in climate solutions, rather than climate problems. Which is why, we only print on 100% recycled pulp paper and card stock.


10 reasons to use­ recycled papers

  1. Since only about 12% of the UK is covered by forests, every sheet of recovered and recycled paper matters.
  2. It takes 24 trees to make one ton of virgin fibre paper.
  3. If waste paper is buried, it releases methane gas, which is roughly 30 times more potent as a heat-trapping gas than carbon dioxide.
  4. Waste typically costs companies 4% of turnover.
  5. Recycling spent paper uses 55% less CO2 emissions than incineration.
  6. Paper fibres can usually be recycled six times over.
  7. Paper recycling emits over 70% less carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases than virgin paper production.
  8. Each ton of recycled paper produced, uses 20,000+ fewer litres of water and 35% less energy than producing paper from virgin fibres.
  9. 12.5 million tonnes of paper and cardboard are used annually in the UK.
  10. Paper recovery and recycling is crucial for the country to meet its carbon dioxide emissions goal by both conserving the UK’s forests and reducing consumption of energy.
