Promote recycling with fun activities that use scrap paper and cardboard
Over 11 million tonnes of paper and card are used in the UK every year. Once discarded, about five million tonnes of paper are sent to landfill sites or for incineration, so recycling paper can make both sound environmental and economic sense. Provide each classroom in your school with a recycling bin for scrap paper and encourage children to reuse it – starting with these creative papier mâché, decoupage and origami activities.
