PULP NON-FICTION

PAPER.....It's everywhere, it's 40% of most people's trash, and it's VERY recyclable!

A few months ago, we told you about the CAPE PAPER CAMPAIGN, an offshoot  of the MASS RECYCLES PAPER's mission to get an additional one million tons of paper out of the trash each year. We're happy to report that 9 Cape and Islands towns, including Chatham, and 154 Massachusetts communities have already signed the pledge to commit to this worthy goal. Please recycle and use less paper whenever possible!

MORE ON THE "PAPER TRAIL".....
Did you know you can recycle all those Christmas cards you received in the Mixed Paper bin at the Chatham Transfer Station's Recycling Area?
For more info:  chathamrecycles.org/what.shtml

WHAT IF?.........
What if we all started reducing the margins on our printed paper? What if we could get companies to adopt narrower margins as their printing standard? It would result in a lot less paper consumption, which of course means saving a lot of trees and cutting down on a lot of waste.

PAPER RECYCLING HERO OF THE WEEK:
Chatham High School Student Audrey Hart has won our undying admiration for
transporting newspapers used by Social Studies classes to the Chatham Transfer Station's Recycling Area virtually every day!  She is keeping a huge amount of paper out of the waste stream.  We applaud you and thank you, Audrey!
