Even with the advent of email we still get lots of paper in our mailboxes. After a trip to the grocery store you’ll find your groceries packed in paper bags, and a lot of the food you eat is packaged in paper. Unlimited amounts of paper waste is everywhere.
In this amazing video you’re going to learn how to turn all sorts of paper waste into a virtually unlimited source of fuel to heat your home, or perhaps to use as a source of heat in a survival situation, or maybe on a camping trip. The best part is you can make this fuel for free!
I’m sure you’ve probably seen other ways to turn paper waste products into fuel, however most of those ways take a long time. It’s also a messy process. So after some thought the guy in the video figured out a way to speed up the process, and make this project worthwhile. Go ahead and watch the video now to see how he does it.
Did You Know
1. 30% – 40% percent of municipal waste is paper, and 50% of office waste going to landfills is paper.
2. A single paper bag uses twice as much energy to make than a plastic bag.
3. 3,000 tons of used paper towel ends up in US landfills every day. That same paper towel uses twice as much C0₂ to make produce than reusable (and prettier!) cloth napkins.
4. Switching to an eFiling, paperless system could save up to 1.4 trillion pounds of paper, 728K trees, and lots of C0₂ if everyone did it.
5. Recycling used paper could save 41K trees and keep 6M tons of waste out of full landfills.
6. Nearly half (42%) of all global wood harvest is destined to become paper.
7. Every US household throws out the equivalent of 4 trees in paper waste!
8. Did you know that recycling one ton of paper saves 20 trees, 7,000 gallons of water, three cubic yards of landfill space, 60 pounds of air pollutants, and saves enough energy to power the average home for six months?
9. A typical takeout lunch consists of 1/3 paper, 1/3 plastic, and 1/3 food (maybe that’s why you’re still hungry!).
10. If every US home replaced just one roll of paper towel with recycled paper towel, we would save 544,000 trees.
11. Every year, the junk mail industry destroys approximately 100 million trees. The production and disposal of junk mail uses up more energy than what is used by 3 million cars! All this just so you can get some mail that you’re probably not going to look at anyway.
