We are trying to reduce our waste so we did a waste audit and found that paper was one of the most common things. We then did another audit specifically for paper to find out what type was the most common. We sorted and weighed it and found the one sided worksheets were really common so we tried to encourage the school to use 2 sided as much as possible and to use the one sided as scrap. Ms. Soares-Chan showed us how to make notebooks out of scrap paper.
