US Random House Vows to Use 30 Pct Recycled Paper

Leading US publisher Random House plans to invest millions of dollars to raise the proportion of recycled paper it uses to print books to at least 30 percent from under 3 percent at present.

Random House Inc., which accounts for 13 percent of the US adult book trade market, said on Tuesday it would gradually increase its use of recycled paper so that by 2010 nearly a third of the uncoated paper it uses will be recycled.

It also plans to use at least 10 percent recycled materials for glossy titles such as cookbooks and art books by 2008.

The measures would equate to the preservation of more than 550,000 trees a year, Random House said.
