REUSING NEWSPAPERS


Hello world! So today I thought of sharing something important with you all.

We all know that we should save paper but most of us, including me, don’t actually do that… Of course there are some exceptions to that and I would definitely want those precious gems to be honoured.

Anyways, coming back to the topic, 3 years back, when I was in class 6, my science book had an activity which was about reusing newspapers. Yes newspapers… Many of you must be thinking that how on earth are we supposed to do  that?… Well it is possible and is definitely quite simple… And I’m going to tell you how to do that.

Step 1:

Tear 2 sheets of a newspaper into tiny bits and pieces. They should be quite small but not totally a miniature size. And of course, they need not be of the same size, you can tear them by hand.

Step 2:

Soak these pieces of newspapers in boiling hot water. In case you are under 18, I would suggest that you do it under adult supervision.

Step 3:

Now strain the water and smash the bits of paper by hand… If you are unable to do it by hand, you can use a big spoon or something also. Squeeze and squish and smash the wet papers to make them look like a ball.

Step 4:

Roll this ball with a rolling pin. If you don’t have a rolling pin, you can also use a big, long, cylindrical tube to make the ball flat. Try to keep the edges straight while you flatten the paper ball.

Step 5:

Cover both sides of the flattened paper with aluminium foil… mind you both sides of it. Make a few holes on the sides of the foil so that any extra water in the newspapers can flow out.

Step 6:

Keep the whole set up in a place which recieves direct sunlight and keep it undisturbed for 72 hours.

Open the aluminium foil after 3 days and the result you get is the recycled newspaper. Now you can use it to draw, or write whatever you want…

This is the paper that I made by following this procedure. Of course, it was made a long time back, so the sides had torn and I had to edit the picture. I drew this cute little elephant on the paper, you can use it anyway you would like to.

So in only 6 steps you can create this beautiful and useful thing. Moreover most of the things are readily available at home. So what are you waiting for? Start making it right now!
