recently these beautiful trees have made the news for a very sad reason. ...some of the oldest ones are dying inexplicably. scientists are still investigating the reason for this unhappy demise. in the meantime I will continue to honour them on my platters.
I think I haven't bought post-its or paper for my printer in years. Also do I not have a printer 😁 Yes, paper as a resource made from wood is renewable. But consider how long a tree grows to become mature. And then think about how many paper-based products we carelessly dispose of every day - often using them only a single time (if at all!). 😱 Of course, many paper products already come recycled: that brown paper bag, the newspaper or paper towels, for example. 🗞️📃🚽 But why should that mean we can waste them? Recycling paper waste also consumes energy and I don't quite see why that shouldn't count. Long story short, let's use less paper and use the paper and cardboard we already have more than just once. ♻️ Below, you see my train ticket (wasn't my choice to print it in the first place) turned into scrap paper for notes. #turnthepage#savethetrees#uselesspaper#berlinzerowaste#zerowaste#reusecardboard#reuse#reduce#recycle#paper#savepaper#dontwaste
