9 different ways to recycle news paper and magazine

"Be kind to environment, save trees!" Do you have any idea of how a piece of paper is being processed? Well, an estimated 24 trees are being cut to produce a ton of paper. According to a pulp and paper technology professional, Mr. Tom Solder, a single tree is being saved for every 16.67 reams of copy paper saved. It may sounds like exaggerated but very true! If we forsake the forest and its resources, we'll reap the bitter taste of its revenge.
If you have an embankment of old newspapers, magazines, yellow pages and even those paper shopping bag, you should not cast them away. There are scrap buyers who buy those stuff to sell to recyclers. Aside from selling paper scrap, there is another way to recycle them and it is by making recycled craft out of paper.
