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!
