There are several causes of deforestation. One of them is the demand for trees to make paper products. However, there are greener ways to make these products than by cutting down trees.
One environmentally friendly way to make paper and paper products is to use recycled materials. Many cities have recycling programs that accept paper. If we recycle our newspaper, cardboard, and other paper, then we might be able to reduce the demand for new paper, thereby reducing deforestation. The article linked below lists some more benefits of recycling paper.
If we must cut down trees to make new products, then we should establish tree plantations. In a tree plantation, a new tree is planted for every tree that is cut down. Doing this could offset the negative effects of deforestation and could provide a sustainable source for making paper products.
