It's quite a thought to think of a world where paper doesn't exist. Even today, things like writing on a piece of scratch paper can now be replaced with a portable digital notepad or getting a receipt at the grocery store now has the option to email you instead. But will paper ever really go out of style?
This might be a question that even google can't answer, but there are a few statistics that show paper is still thriving in this digital world. For example, the world uses 400 percent more paper than it did 40 years ago and each year, every person in the United States uses around 749 pounds of paper.
What about paper consumption in the office? Maybe invoicing is slowly being delivered electronically or faxing is a thing of the past but you would be surprised by how much paper businesses are using:
For a society that is more likely to communicate through email, text, social media, app's and pretty much everything but traditional media like writing letters, it's safe to say that paper consumption seems to still be a significant part of the every day world.
