Dear Teachers, Parents and Students,
Did you know that hundreds of thousands of trees are being chopped down every year? The effect of this is that animals are dying because their habitat is being destroyed. As well as being a habitat for wildlife, trees are important because they protect soil from erosion and they help keep our air clean.
You can make a big difference and help save wildlife by not using a lot of paper, using both sides of the paper, putting used paper into the recycling bin, using scrap paper and buying photocopy paper that is 100% recycled.
Another idea is to make the switch to toilet paper made from recycled paper. The Wipe for Wildlife website at www.zoo.org.au/get-involvd/act-for-wildlife/wipe-for-wildlife explains that you should look for toilet paper that is made from 100% recycled paper and contains no harsh chemicals.
We hope you can help save our trees, wildlife and our planet.
