Well, we all know that recycling is a good way to save paper and save our trees. What other ways have you found to save paper use so we dont use more trees than necessary.

Well for one thing, when you print something, if at all possible also use the other side of the paper. If you have a sheet you've already printed on, and you're done with it, turn it around and use the other side. Always use the back sides of notebook paper. (There are some people that only use one side and that drives me nuts!) Hmm what else....If you make a note to yourself don't throw away the entire paper, you could make a note later if there's more room. I can't really think of any more...recycling is probably the best one!

Those are some great ideas. I like the part about using both of the paper. I do that too :)

Itis a good discussion topic not many people get interested through it is very important and burning topic. We should use the text books for longer period so that re-print should be avoided. Ragpickers should be encouraged to collect more paper for recycling. Use of internet for assignments should be encouraged, instead of writing lengthy writeups on paper. Use of more and more electronic media in place of paper should be encouraged.

If you have clutter and/or items around your house you dont want to be bothered with selling or taking to the dump - then Freecycle is for you at www.freecycle.org for a Freecycle group in your area. Freecycle is international. Recycle items to avoid overfilling the garbage dumps and make space in your home. One man's trash is another man;s treasure" truely applies here. I have given away so many things that I almost trashed that someone wanted and even came and carted it away. You can put in requests, too, and from there I received a free handicapped electric lift recliner worth over $400.00 someone didnt need anymore! The only requirement is that you cant give away forbidden items like explosives and such and everything must be FREE, you cant barter, exchange or sell. Try it yourself!
