Tips on Saving Trees

Look for tips on recycling so you know that your efforts will be rewarded with recycled material.

Cut down on and share magazines, return unwanted catalogs to the sender.

Don’t make exceptions at restaurants. If a waiter/waitress brings you napkins, just say no nicely.

Before printing a picture or document, ask yourself, “Do I really need to print this out?”

If you’re are writing a paper for school, most teachers will accept neat handwritten work. Try to use both sides of your papers.

Make sure any paper you buy (toilet rolls, tissue papers, writing paper) comes from recycled sources. Reuse paper bags or compost receipts and torn-up bank statements. Reuse envelopes and make your own cards. Ask your boss to buy recycled paper for your workplace.

Trees help the Earth and people. People should think before cutting down trees, “When I cut down trees, I am actually affecting the life of people on Earth.”
