THINK BEFORE YOU THROW AWAY PACKAGING!
If you can't find a way to creatively use it, then make sure you recycle it.
Did you know that you can use old placemats, beakers, etc and cover them in old papers.
Cover with a gloss or PVA. Use old maps, newspapers, magazines, comics, letters, fabric, the possibilities are endless!
The average household throws away 13,000 separate pieces of paper each year. Most is packaging and junk mail.
Recycled papers no longer look different. You can now find recycled content papers with the same whiteness and brightness as virgin papers.
