The following is the beginning of a series of tips that I want to introduce so that we can all become greener writers!
Use this information to reflect on your habits as a writer; improve your habits as a writer; tell us about the alterations you made as a writer.
Ready for a challenge?
TIP #1 - Write On Recycled Paper
According to the US EPA, recycling one short ton of paper saves 17 mature trees, 7 thousand US gallons of water, 3 cubic yards of landfill space, 2 barrels of oil and 4,100 kilowatt-hours of electricity.
Of course you can buy recycled paper, but what could be more fun, exciting and out-of-the-box for a writer than to recycle paper by making your own writing pads, notebooks or journals!
If you work in an office where the extra sheet of paper comes out of the printer to identify the user, save those, and when you've accumulated a nice size stack, cut it in half, two-hold punch each half at the top then insert paper fasteners to create two memo pads. Or, use the entire stack to make a notebook or journal!
That was SO easy.
Until next time...
Blogging is my impulse to answer questions people didn't ask me and write about truths people don't want to face. From wellness to politics, sports and death, if it's "writable," I write about it!
