Description All the negative consequences to the environment, caused by the mass paper-production industry are known by the term “paper pollution” and are considered one of the main environmental challenges for society nowadays. Taking this into consideration we should also point out some positive tendencies that gradually came up as a response to paper pollution, such as green printing, production of hand-made paper for personal use or for making artistic objects, recycling paper, growing popularity of certain small businesses that make and sell objects made from recycled paper and alike.
