addition to each paper manufacturer's and distributor's
website, there are a number of national sources for
listings of recycled copy and office paper options.
Many state and local governments also include regional
listings on their websites.
Environmentally Sound Paper Listings - Lists
printing and writing papers available in North America
(including imports), along with environmental attributes
that have been verified by mill personnel
Integrated Waste Management Board Recycled-Content Product
Database - Search using the "CIWMB Standard
Product Categories." Results may not be complete if
you use other terminology. Listings are a mix of manufacturers
and distributors, some national, others local to specific
regions of the country. The list is North America-wide,
not only California.

Environmental Protection Agency - The categorizations
list are very general, some of the listings
are extremely outdated, and the state sorts are incomplete
and inadequate. Use the general (non-state) sort and
then check for those papers with local suppliers.
Government Printing Office (GPO) - Lists brand name
copy papers that have been tested
by the GPO and were determined to be in compliance
with the requirements of the JCP O-65 paper standard
