According to Wikipedia, the Dalia Lama translates meaning a teacher who is spiritually as great as the ocean. That’s pretty impressive stuff if you ask us. In 1989, Tenzin Gyatso, the current Dalai Lama, won the Nobel peace prize.

Agricultural waste: it is not an intentional crop, it is the waste from an existing land use, it is an excellent alternative since it is reducing the impact on the environment.
Post-Consumer Material (PCW) Waste paper that has served its intended purpose and has been separated from solid waste to be recycled into new paper. Quite commonly, it is simply the garbage that individuals routinely discard, either in a waste receptacle or a dump, or by littering, incinerating. Pre-consumer waste: commonly used in manufacturing industries, and is often not considered recycling in the traditional sense. Post-Consumer Material (PCW) Waste paper that has served its intended purpose and has been separated from solid waste to be recycled into new paper. This is what you and I take to the recycling center.
Recycled Paper: EPA does not defined this term. According to the Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC) Guides for Environmental Marketing Claims, a paper can be called “recycled” only if it contains 100 percent postconsumer recovered fiber. If the postconsumer content is less than 100 percent, the paper should be called “recycled-content” paper.
Virgin Fiber/Paper: Refers to cellulose fiber derived directly from trees that have just been cut down.
Process(ed) Chlorine Free (PCF) Applies to post-consumer recycled content only as it means that no chorine (or compounds) were used “this time around” but there may be traces of chlorine present because of earlier processes which where not in our own process to make sustainable papers.
Totally chlorine free (TCF): No chlorine or chlorine derivatives used to make the paper.
