Carleton College does not have a directive to purchase recycled paper since recycled content office paper jams the printers. A significant portion of our office paper purchases is eucalyptus, a rapidly renewable material that is Forest-Stewardship Council certified. We do not have a breakdown of total purchases based on FSC certification.
