What do we use Paper for?
Paper Recycling

The Egyptians made the earliest known paper over four thousand years ago. They made paper using plants called papyrus. Today, most paper is made using wood chips from trees. Recycling paper saves wood, which means that less forests need to be cut down.

There are two different types of paper which can be recycled:

White Paper: This includes high quality paper, such as writing paper, envelopes and photocopier and printer paper. This type of paper can be recycled into quality paper for use in schools and offices.

Newspapers and Magazines: These can be recycled to make new newsprint, or to make some types of cardboard and paper packaging, such as egg cartons.
