Post related to Thirsty paper,

We did the Thirsty paper challenge and learned about the lenghty, costly and waterful process it is to make paper. However if we recycle paper that means we dont have to grow so many trees, which means less water used, we dont have to debark and chip would, we simply need to repulp the 'waste' paper and by doing this we can reduce the water footprint of 1 piece of paper by nearly 50% !
