Wondering what to do with that stack of old notes from last semester? Did you have a professor that kept printing single-sided? Couldn’t spare the time to figure out the printing properties while running late to class? Recycling is great, and it’s widely available all over campus, but what about reuse techniques? You’re in luck.
At our campus Copy Center, Joyce makes notepads out of your single-sided paper. She has a beautifully simple set-up where she stacks, sticks and slices donated paper into notepad after notepad of all shapes and sizes. The more paper she has, the more notepads are made.
What’s even better: she gives these notepads away for free. Stop by the Copy Center during business hours, say “hi” and thanks to Joyce, and pick up a few up-cycled notepads.
