: My HP inkjet's user-guide says, the paper of the guide contains 50% recycled paper, 10% post consumer content. What is PCC?

It refers what you throw in the garbage after you've used the product. If you are an environmentally conscious consumer or a corporation that wants to project itself as such, then you'll be interested in that number.

Personally, I think it's a shame how large the packaging is on inkjet cartridges, but that's apparently what they have to do to keep people from slipping them into their pockets and stealing them.
