How do you go about selecting an environmentally friendly paper?
HOW TO CHOOSE PAPERS

is often unjustly blamed for problems with cost and runnability
when the real problem is that the wrong grade of paper was used.
This section discusses how to:
- match papers to your project's needs,
- reduce paper use,
- design custom papers, and
- choose between types of environmental papers.
It also includes discussions about cost realities and differentials,
as well as information for specialized purposes such as printing,
designing, and book and magazine publishing.
