This was an  interactive  session of questions and answers got children thinking about how they consume water without even realizing it. Using a picture activity and a video clip, learners were shown how paper is made using 10 litres per A4 page to grow the trees, boil the wood chips to make the paper pulp to make the paper. They were also shown how, by simply recycling their paper into new paper less energy and water is needed. By saving energy, we save CO2 which causes climate change. By taking old paper and mixing it with water to make a paperly pasta or pulp, we also save the energy required in growing, cutting and processing the trees. Also we need less trees and therefore more land can kept in their natural, intact condition.
