    This is another way to recycle paper. Take News Paper and use in planting. Cut/shred into small strips and it helps with keeping moisture on the plants so watering is done less.

    what u will need:

    Blender

    water

    used paper

    and a screen (preferably in a frame)

    Directions:

    put the used paper and water in the blender for a bit and make sure its blended well. then take the blended paper and water out, put it on the screen and let dry all the ways...ta da recycled paper...and you'll be able to write on it too.

    Source(s): my little sister and i used to make our own paper out of dryer lint and used paper...it was so fun...came out in neat colors too...

    1. To make other writing/wrapping paper, pulp with water and mix into a slurry pour thin mixture on silk screen frame and dry.

    2. Use newspaper to preserve freshness of vegetable by wrap vegetables like lettuce in fridge

    3. Take clean paper to schools or preschool for teachers to use as craft for kids. ( like we took kids to local lake to float paper origami boats.) Kids use paper to make treasure and decorations.

    Use a blender? I think not!

    Think of how much electricity are you using to creat one sheet of paper - not environmentally friendly.

    Soak the paper in cold water for a day or so, then mash it up - far more eco-friendly! ;)
