Lets do it on paper!!!
The world all around is screaming about recycling, be it paper, metal or even E-wastes i.e. Electronic Wastes. Why not try it yourself and make a little difference. And lets not talk just about recycling, lets Upcycle!
Upcycling is a new word introduced to the world. It basically means developing a more useful product out of the waste we have in hand.
Waste paper can be recycled at home to create sheets of trendy handmade paper which may be used for making greeting cards, wall hangings, charts, gift wraps. And if you are ready to get into a bit more effort, interesting bags and even calendars can also be created. Natural colorings of turmeric and beetroot can add color to your work. Recycled paper can be made in a few simple steps.
Watch this video for a demonstration of the process:
Recycling of paper is much more beneficial than we think. For instance, one ton of newspaper recycled can save you enough energy to power a television for more than 31 hours. Also, newspaper recycling saves 14% of landfill space. And the amount of energy and the number of trees saved, are the boons we already know about.
Upcycling on the other hand, has all the benefits of recycling, plus it gives out products of more and better use than the previous ones. So, Upcycling is the new trend in! Look out for more on this..
