NJ celebrates 40th annual Earth Day
In honor of Earth Day, News 12 New Jersey visited the Marcal factory in Elmwood Park.
At the Marcal factory, paper products are made out of other paper products. The company creates paper towels, toilet paper and tissues out of shredded paper.
Since Earth Day was introduced in 1970, nationwide smog levels are down by 25 percent and lead levels in the air are down by 90 percent.
