Walter: all about paper!

Walter: all about paper!

Today I’m going to let you know about paper! We use it every day- and it’s very handy!

So where did it all start?

Well, before paper Egyptians used a plant called ‘papyrus’ which produced a thick paper like material to write on- not quite paper though!

It wasn’t until 105 AD in China when a man called T’sai Lun invented paper! That’s about 1900 years ago!

Here’s a couple of paper facts!

- Every ton of paper that gets recycled saves 17- 20 tree’s!

- Not all paper is made from wood! Some paper is made from scraps of cloth pieces!
