" This project is important because it will help reduce the amount of trees cut down by finding a way to repurpose paper back into a wood-like substance. Paper is often thrown away and people have to cut down more trees to get more paper or for making other things, like furniture. This is a problem because trees filter out air pollution and makes the air safer to breathe. In addition, all that paper wasted will add to landfills, and while paper is not as dangerous as some other waste, plastic, for example, paper just adds to the amount of waste in these landfills. If manufacturers can use old paper to make more things than just more paper, the amount of trees cut down will be reduced."
