Manitoba’s Largest Paper Recycler Says No To Recycling Originally uploaded by AccessWinnipeg

Pushing my Photoshop skills to their absolute limits, I had hoped to portray something worthy of a story as upsetting as this.

Tembec will now choose trees as a paper source over recycled paper as it is actually cheaper to do so. Tembec has been our province’s largest recycler for paper and this change will result in the loss of 200 jobs and the estimated consumption of 200,000 more trees annually.

It really is a sad day when the destruction of trees is more cost efficient than the recycling of paper.
