Did you know, 500,000 trees are killed every week just for the Sunday newspaper?By making simple changes, such as recycling a single run of The Sunday New York Times, this would save 75,000 trees. So, if all our newspaper was recycled, we could save around 250,000,000 trees every year! There’s no excuse… usually, paper can be recycled up to seven times before it reaches its limit and must be discarded.
The benefits of recycling paper are endless, but just to name a few… recycling paper saves energy, preserves natural resources, reduces greenhouse gas emissions, and keeps landfill space free for other types of rubbish that cannot be recycled. This is part of a series of works celebrating nature, environmental awareness, sustainability and craftsmanship.
