The Eco Effect

We are proud to say that by recycling 100% of our shredded paper, LionCage lowers our customers’ carbon footprint.  LionCage partners with industry leading recyclers to ensure that all documents and metals that can be recycled actually are.

Our environmental responsibilities are also yours.  Are you sure you know what happens to your confidential material once it has been shredded?  Unlike some of our competitors, we direct all of our shredded paper to processing mills within the United States.  This significantly reduces the carbon footprint created in the transportation of baled material and the recycling process.

Recycled paper produces 73% less air pollution than if raw material were used. According to industry experts, each ton of recycled paper can save

  • 17 trees
  • 380 gallons of oil
  • 7,000 gallons of water
  • 4,000 kilowatts of energy
  • 3 cubic yards of landfill space


Carbon offsetting
Each of our every day actions consumes energy and produces carbon emissions. Carbon offsets can be used to compensate for the emissions produced by funding an equivalent carbon dioxide saving elsewhere. Planting trees is a great way to offset your carbon footprint and become carbon neutral. Through photosynthesis, trees absorb carbon dioxide to produce oxygen (and wood). By planting a tree you are helping to offset carbon dioxide emissions.
