1 Using an average of kg, we can conclude it would take reading about books on an e-reader to reach a level in which the environmental impact is.
The environmental impact of paper is significant, which has led to changes in industry and behaviour at both business and personal levels. With the use of modern technology such as the printing press and the highly mechanized harvesting of wood, disposable paper became a relatively cheap commodity, which led to a high level of consumption and rise in global environmental issues such.
