Make and Recycle Paper At Home

There are many ways to ‘go green' but some are usually overlooked at the expense of – well- your wallet!

And paper is one of them. Paper recycling that is.

And to be more specific, paper recycling at your home.

A lot of us know that paper is recycled. Great.

But what is not common knowledge is how to do it yourself – which is really simple.

So if you are serious about going green, you need to get into making some paper of your own particularly if you use a lot of it. Or the kids do.

The process is simple and straightforward. And it doesn't need a lot of complicated tools. Just stuff you have at home or they have at the store.

You'll need:

  • Picture frames
  • Some mesh
  • Duct tape
  • Nails or a stapler
  • Hammer
  • Large tub
  • Pestle and mortar or blender
  • Old blanket
  • Spray bottle
  • Sponge
  • Manual press
  • Paper ready for recycling
  • Something to cover your work

Now go over to this link to find out the process.

I am a former aspiring financial services worker with a special place in my heart for Solar Energy and renewable energy. I got hit pretty bad during the financial downturn and realized that the banking industry is literally bleeding the world dry.

So I switched my focus to something that gives back to the world rather than just takes from it. Renewable energy, especially solar, is something that will help us live on this planet for a long time to come.

General interests of mine include financial stability, world events, being prepared for the worst, renewable energy and sustainability and more. I'm learning something new everyday!
