Recycling Paper

Newspapers, wrapping paper, packaging and all the paper you use in school is made from wood. Trees are cut down to make the paper that you write on, draw on and then throw away.

All this paper can be recycled. It will help to reduce the number of trees cut down to make paper. There will also be less waste going to the rubbish tip.

Watch this video to see how paper is recycled.
