Recycling paper 1

On Saturday, 9 February 2008, a specially-trained representative of the Ecological Company of Recycling gave to the Club’s members a presentation on recycling, followed by a workshop on making recycled paper.

During the presentation, the young EcoFans were educated on the process of paper manufacturing and paper recycling. They were sensitized to the wasteful use of paper and paper-based products and were introduced to alternative ways for waste management. The Club’s members participated enthusiastically, answering questions and expressing their own views. During the workshop, they rotated through five different posts, needed in producing recycled paper from old newspapers. They shredded the newspapers, soaked them in water, and turned them into pulp that they used to create paper.

By the time the activity was over, all members had learned in a stimulating manner that paper recycling is a simple process that can drastically limit negative consequences on the environment.
