As that we are doing an infographic poster on the negatives of recycled paper we strongly had to consider what paper we would print on. This is a decision that links well with ethics of a designer as it is all about making your own decisions on what is right and what will work best for the piece of design and also going with what you believe in. We came to the conclusion that printing on recycled paper would be wrong as therefore we would then be promoting recycled paper by using it, we would end up contradicting ourselves.

As a group we made the decision that it would make the most sense to use fresh new paper as that in the poster we explain that new paper comes from sustainable tree farms and not deforestation. In some ways is better for the environment than making new paper as it uses more environmentally friendly processes.
