We at Odo are introducing a paradigm shift in the education domain by offering an end to end paperless solution to give students the best exam writing experience while implementing the best sustainable solution to mother earth. There by paving the path to a brighter tomorrow.
The Earth loses 18.7 million acres of forests per year, which is equal to 27 soccer fields every minute, according to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). It is estimated that 15 percent of all greenhouse gas emissions come from deforestation.
Now nearly 4+ billion trees or 35 percent of the total trees cut around the world are used in paper industries on every continent.
So it would take about 8 of these trees to produce between 1,000 and 2,000 pounds of paper, since a typical 500-sheet packet of the paper weighs 5 pounds, that’s 10,000 to 20,000 sheets per well grown tree.
Every year, Americans use more than 90 million tons of paper and paperboard. That’s an average of 700 pounds of paper products per person each year. Every year in America, more than 2 billion books, 350 million magazines, and 24 billion newspapers are published
139 acres of Trees are cut each minute. Assuming there are around 400 trees per acre (this depends greatly on the species, the age of the trees and if the area has been managed) making 55600 trees being destroyed every minute
Alas …While you were reading the above section, we have lost 1,11,200 trees
