Make It Australian Recycled

Closing the paper recycling loop


What is Make It Australian Recycled?

We want to change the way Australians view recycled paper. Many people don’t realise you don’t need to compromise on quality to get the best environmental office paper available, and that by purchasing Australian office paper with a high recycled content you are supporting the Australian recycling industry. 

The Make It Australian Recycled program encourages individuals, workplaces and schools to do their bit for the environment by closing the paper recycling loop – recycling their waste paper and then buying it back by purchasing Australian made office paper with 50% or more recycled content. 

Why should I buy recycled?

By buying office paper made with a high recycled content, you are:

  • Helping divert waste from Australian landfills

  • Reducing your carbon footprint (recycled paper uses less energy and less water in the production process)

  • Supporting the Australian economy and providing local green manufacturing jobs

  • Offsetting the environmental costs of importing paper from overseas

  • Saving virgin resources (using recycled paper keeps paper as a natural resource in circulation for as long as possible)
