Recycled Plane Stubs

19 Jun

You’ll be surprised on how many trees we ‘cut down’ in a single day in an office with all the paper products we consume — from bond paper, to tissue, to paper towels.

If we go on like this, could you just imagine what it will be like 5 years from now?

Check out what I saw in my in-laws’ place. Who would have thought that something can be made out of small plane stubs.

From this:

To these!

* used up approximately 5000 pieces of plane stubs!!!

* I didn’t even attempt to count the stubs on this one!

See how detailed it is!

Don’t you find it amazing that something useful can still be made out of these plane stubs? I don’t even know where these stubs are used. That’s how much we ignore the paper we use around us.

We are all aware of the importance of recycling as well as minimizing the usage paper. But knowing is one thing and doing something about it is another.

We all have to do our share in recycling paper around us — No matter how small it is…

    Wow, that is amazing! Where did they get that?
    I personally keep those boarding passes and use them for scratch paper or bookmarks. Or simply to cover up bubble gum before throwing it away.
    We should really learn how to recycle. People should be educated about it! (Ay, sorry, biglang naging preachy!)
