When it comes to recycling of vital resources, which is necessary to protect the climate and reduce waste, campuses make a huge impact. Paper is one of those necessary resources. But unfortunately, it is often overlooked. However, the way we manufacture, use, dispose of, and purchase paper can have dramatic impacts on the global climate, and the overall sustainability of our lifestyle. The paper is a report submitted to the management regarding the paper management and ways of reduce, reuse and recycle of paper within the educational campuses for sustainability and one step towards green campus.
