Paper Made From Stone, To Help Save Trees

by Adele Peters

The production process doesn't require any water, and the paper is naturally white, so it also doesn't have to be bleached and doesn't need strong acids. All of this means that the pollution associated with normal paper-making can be avoided. It's also easy to recycle, without the large amounts of water and energy that recycling usually uses. The material won't be made into new paper, but can be recycled into plastic products like flower pots and bags.

It's an interesting product. In some cases, it might even be more environmentally-friendly than using a digital tool, depending on the amount of energy used by something like a computer or e-reader.
