    Recycle newspapers to heat the homes of poor

    In line with our focus on recycling paper, take a look at 75 year olds’ take on it. An old fellow from Japan has cranked up a method to recycle his old newspapers to heat his home. Shigeru Ota has modified the fundamental method of recycling old newspapers into burnable bricks. Starting off by soaking newspapers in water, he uses a 2-inch wide steel pipe to remove water based on a mechanism similar to that of a ratcheting caulk gun. Once thoroughly dried, the plugs of newsprint resemble standard charcoal briquettes in shape and size. Though such a method may not be viable on a larger scale, at least underprivileged folks can utilize heaps of discarded newsprints to heat up their shelters in chilling times.

Consequently, the heavy metals associated with electronic equipment are not present. Around 95% of the PCBs are green in color, but occasionally we get gold, red and (most rarely), blue. Some boards are single sided with a brown back and green front and others are green both sides.’

    Care to write on a chit recycled out of sheep’s shit?

    With no offense to anybody, my header stands true to its suggestion. An U.K company is out on the fields to collect the sheep’s poo to recycle it into a tree-free paper. Though many may cringe at the thought of putting your pen down on a piece of paper derived out of a shit, I think it’s a wonderful creation that helps to save our trees and forests. The collected poo is completely sterilized by boiling and later beaten into a cellulose pulp. Using traditional techniques, the pulp is formed into sheets and heat pressed into usable paper.
