Recycling, Reusing Newspapers Saves Millions of Trees

If everyone in the U.S. recycled just 1/10th of their newsprint, it would save approximately 25 million trees a year!

38.2 percent of our total waste is from paper and paperboard.

Recycling is great, but you can even get some benefit from them by reusing them. There are many things that newspapers can be used for around the home and especially in the garden.

View some ideas here.

Remember the old-fashioned school paper drives? Nothing says we can't begin doing that again!
