Eco-friendly Ways To Reuse And Recycle
Books And Magazin
As more and more old-growth trees are cut down, and we face the reality of havin
g to wait close to 100 years or more to replace them, the need to recycle paper
, of course, in
cludes books and magazin
es. Although paper
products are nearly 100% biodegradable, it is poin
tless to send these resources to the dump to rot in
the landfill when we can recycle
and reuse them.
More than any other material we hope to recycle
, books and magazin
es represent knowledge. We fin
d wisdom in
the pages of old books, and learn about culture in
the pages of old magazin
es. Because of these factors, the best thin
g to do with old books and magazin
es is pass them on.
Your local library or college library will accept donations of old books, and sometimes magazin
good shape. This allows other people to benefit from the publication as well. Once you have enjoyed your book, donate it to a library rather than lettin
g it sit on a shelf to collect dust.
