Recycled Paper Shredding  📝


here are some of the awesome suggestions we have heard as to how you can REUSE your Paper Shredding!

  • reuse it as padding for gifts or packages you may send! 🎁
  • using it as padding in your pets enclosures (how cute!) 🐾
  • turning it into recycled paper! 📝
  • mixing it into the soil of pot plants to absorb moisture! 🌱
  • use it as a fire starter when making fires! (safely and legally of course) 🏕

got any more suggestions! leave us a comment on the YouTube video above! <3


keep in mind that some City Councils will NOT accept Paper Shredding in your recycling bin!

please look on your local councils website to see if they accept shredded paper in their recycling bins, and what requirements you need to undertake to put it in there! 👍🏼

ALTERNATIVELY, here are some other ways you can recycle Paper Shredding!

  • chuck it in your compost bin! (if you have one!) 🌱
  • dig a small hole and bury it in your garden! (it will naturally biodegrade over about 2 weeks!) 🧑🏼‍🌾
  • mix it in with a bag of garden soil and use it when gardening! 🌹
