Consume less paper and cardboard and you will protect forests. Limit the energy and water used to manufacture these products, and reduce the waste generated.
Recycle blank sides as scrap paper. Reuse envelopes whenever possible and keep others for making shopping lists and noting down messages.
Once you have finished reading your books, newspapers and magazines, pass them on to others.
And, of course, recycle your paper and cardboard.
