Recycled Paper Definitions can get a bit confusing. Here are the definitions of 3 kinds.

 

Recycled Paper: Paper that contains a minimum of

40% post-consumer content

 

Post-Consumer: Paper that has been printed on, went

to the end customer and was used prior to being

recycled

 

Pre-Consumer: Paper that was not printed on, was

not sent to the end customer, and should not be

considered when choosing recycled paper for purchase
