Recyle more and better
Famous French cat Pompon poses in a wastepaper basket to launch his own campaign for selective white paper recycling. France, where white paper, cartons and wrappings are usually mixed together in one recycling bin, is miserably behind in this domain. According to Géraldine Poivert, general director of Ecofolio, it costs 250 € per ton to sort the mixed paper at a recycling center; a considerable savings for all concerned could be realized if sorting were done by users at the source.
