We all consume a lot of paper, knowingly or not. Right from the physical bills of everything we buy to printing invoices for work. As per the Environmental Paper Network, The paper and pulp industry is the fourth largest emitter of greenhouse gases in the manufacturing sector & 16% of landfill space is filled by paper products.
At an individual level, we can try to minimise our paper needs to only where its required and shift to digital resources. And with the paper you already have and is ready to get trashed? We have a fun DIY to make your own handmade papers with newspapers & fabric scraps.
Making paper at home can be a pretty simple process. It’s also a fantastic way to use up your old receipts, scrap papers, junk mail, and copy paper that you were about to throw in the recycling bin, and instead decide to Refash it.
If you'd like to make your own, here is the guide:
- Fabric scraps
- Two picture frames with a flat side
- Lots of towels
1. Trim fabric scraps very, very small. Used here are linen/rayon and cotton scraps.
