Cross-border e-commerce: The Power of Paper
What is the power of paper. Paper is one of the most sustainable products as it is made from renewable resources. It is biodegradable and can cycle back in its original source for renewable energy. As trees grow they absorb CO2 from the atmosphere. Furthermore, as a wood product, paper also continues to store carbon throughout its lifetime. It is a non-toxic biodegradable material.
