Five Simple Ways To Save Trees…..
1) USE OF MECHANICAL PENCIL:
There was a period when writings were engraved on stones and walls. Gradually they scripted on leather and at a period paper was invented.
Pencils were invented, but this invention had an adverse effect on trees. To conserve trees start using mechanical pencils which are commonly called as pen-pencils in India. These pencils are made of stainless steel or plastics. They are a wonderful alternative for pencils made using wood. This can save a huge amount of trees.
2) USE OF E-BOOKS:
Schools, colleges, offices and all other places have the importance of books. Books which are an unavoidable are made by papers. These papers are produced through cutting down papyrus trees. Nearly 4 billion trees are cut down each year for the cause of papers. Buy eBooks in place of paperbacks.
These days all books are available in E-book formats. Also, there are free pdf files which can be downloaded.
Usage of E-books can save a wide amount of trees.
3) RE-USE, REMAKE:
Reuse the card boxes provided. Cartoons given for cereals and other groceries can be reused as containers.
Toilet rolls, cardboards can be remade into home décors.
4) CARRY HAND-KERCHEIFS:
Carry handkerchiefs where ever you go. Avoid using tissues.
5) USE CLOTH-BAGS:
Plastic bags are replaced by paper bags these days. But for manufacturing paper bags millions of trees are cut down. Use cloth bags, big shoppers instead of paper bags.

Planting alone doesn’t cover your duties. Take care of the tree until it is stable.
