Additional documentation to support the submission:

BCIT has switched to Sugar Sheet paper for roughly 85% of its paper purchasing. Sugar Sheets are manufactured using the waste fibre generated from sugar cane processing.

The other 15% of purchases are miscellaneous and are purchased sporadically throughout the year, and therefore have been estimated as made from 0% recycled materials.
