Save for another day

Paper which has been printed on only one side is perfect for children’s colouring. Ask permission to put a box in your office with a fun sign to encourage colleagues to put their papers in it.

It can also be cut up and stapled to make note books. Cut up the A4 pages into four and then staple them at the top or corner. You can add an old picture or card on the front to make it more interesting!

Recycle birthday and Christmas cards – keep your old cards, they can then be stuck onto thin cardboard to make new and attractive cards

Use old magazines to wrap birthday gifts

Use outdated letterheads for in-house memos
