    Old printer paper is great to use for making patterns for craft or sewing items. It doesn’t matter if it has type because you are establishing size and fit, not using the surface. It is extra nice because it will hold a crease much better than newsprint. It is also good for making templates for Christmas cookie houses.

    What bothers me is this habit we have of destroying hardwood forests and replacing them--reluctantly--with evergreens. No one is replanting the oaks, etc we're going to need in the future. And nowhere have I seen a plan to address this. The problem is that the hardwoods are slow-growers, and the foresting agencies, including and especially the loggers, don't want to wait (and evidently can't be bothered to plan long-term for the future,) hence the pines. I noticed this way back in '68, when I met my first 'reforesting project' as a Girl Scout. ANd from everything I hear, when they boast about replanting, there are those tiny firs again. Fine for soil conservation, maybe, not so much for the things we use hardwoods for: furniture and housing. We're not done yet.

    This is all very good stuff to know. I feel we tend to treat paper as we sometimes treat food and that is little regard as to what it can do to our environment.
