We all read about “recycled paper” and know that it takes trees to create paper. The amount of the recycled content in paper varies and there are various regulatory bodies such as the Forest Stewardship Council that can verify if the “green” or “recycled” paper you may choose to buy is indeed made from 100% recycled content or a mix. Beyond that, the forests that products come from should be managed according to rigorous social and environmental standards and the products should not come from clearcutting or other unacceptable sources.

As an alternative, you can go the extra mile and make your own paper products, even recycling waste you find nearby to do so, and it’s fun. For more information on how to do this yourself, view the link below. With a little practice, you’ll be making a lovely and unique paper all your own that helps clean up and can itself be recycled again.
