About Us


By making a simple change from other copy papers to 100% post-consumer fibre paper (Cascades Enviro100), schools can prevent many trees from being unnecessarily cut down each year. Use the paper calculator below to realize the impact of paper on our forests.

It is roughly $10 more per case (5000 sheets) to make the switch. The paper calculator determines the number of trees a school could save from being cut down for paper by entering the copy paper budget dollars. It will also determine how much less 100% recycled paper would have to be used to switch and stay within budget. Many schools across the TDSB have started using recycled paper and have easily found ways to reduce the total amount of paper used in the school to pay the extra cost.
