Schools teach students and students do a lot of writing, so they use a lot of paper. Here is an idea for anyone who wants to get active in helping the environment. Organize with your school to recycle paper, put a box in every classroom for paper only. Work with a local paper recycling center to see if arrangements can be made for someone to take the paper for it to be recycled. Tons of paper is used in schools across the country every week, save trees and recycle at your school.
