A brief description of the time period from which the figures reported above are drawn:

During the calendar year 2018-2019 we spent $13,212.00 on office paper for use in multi-function devices and smaller printers. All of this paper, manufactured by Domtar, is certified and stamped by the Sustainable Forestry Initiative and is sourced from wood products that have been certified by third party sustainability standards and avoiding those from High Conservation Value Forests. Warren Wilson uses this paper because the transportation footprint, cost and print quality of other recycled papers does not meet our criteria (eg the paper mill for "recycled paper" is on the West Coast). The mill that produces our paper, certified by the Sustainable Forest Initiative, is in the southeast. 100% of this paper is certified as such.
