Did you know that... Collecting 1 ton of waste paper protects 17 trees from being cut down! Interestingly, it can also be processed up to 7 times. It would be impossible to produce the average amount of paper we use without recycling, collection and processing.

Photocopier paper accompanies us at every step of our lives. For as long as we can remember, we have painted our works on pieces of paper , only to now encounter it every day in our workplaces. But where did copy paper actually come from and how did the art of its production develop?

Copier paper - an invention that changed the course of communication.

PAPIER KSERO Before copier paper as we know it existed, people communicated using tree bark, wall paintings, and clay tablets. The first papers were created 2,000 years ago in China. Its inventor is considered to be Ts'ai Luna - a Chinese court official who mixed mulberry bark, hemp, rags with water, crushed them into a pulp, and then hung the thin mat to dry in the sun. The first paper mills were established in Spain, then when paper was easier to make, it was used to print important books, bibles and legal documents.

Finally, in 1690, the first American paper mill was built in Pennsylvania. Initially, American paper mills used the Chinese method of grinding old rags and clothes into individual fibers to produce paper.

However, as the demand for paper increased, mills began using wood fibers because wood was cheaper and more plentiful than cloth. Today, paper is made from trees grown in sustainably managed forests and from recycled paper.
