Recycled Paper for Eco Friendly Living
Have you ever looked at your toilet paper and wondered exactly where they got the recycled part of the tissue? Don’t worry—it wasn’t from used toilet paper! Junk mail, newsprint, and light cardboard make up most of that recycled content. Using recycled paper products is an important part of eco friendly living because:
- Using recycled products mean that we aren’t using up natural resources on paper plates or toilet paper.
- Less energy is used to recycle paper into another form than to make paper for the first time.
- Recycling keeps the amount of landfill waste down.
