N is for Newspapers – Recycle and Consider Alternatives

N is for Newspapers – Recycle and Consider Alternatives

There are 63 million newspapers printed each day in the U.S. Of these, 44 million, or about 69%, of them will be thrown away. Recycling just the Sunday papers would save more than half a million trees every week. Consider reading the newspaper online. Try using old newspapers to make handmade paper.

What other “N”-things can you do to protect the earth?
