The Knesset will start using only 100 percent recycled paper in upcoming weeks, Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein's office announced Sunday.

Until now, 85% of the paper used in the Knesset was from recycled paper, but the paper was only 50% post-consumer recycled.

Almost all the paper used by the Knesset is recycled. But Edelstein ordered steps to be taken to limit the use of paper at all, including supplying more touch screens for the MKs with all the necessary information about legislation.
