Re-purpose Your Augsburg “College” Paper

submitted by

We probably all have some Augsburg College paper that will need to disappear soon. Instead of recycling it all, the Environmental Stewardship Committee is working on ways to creatively re-purpose it! More details to come, but if you have paper, hang on to it for now. Notepads, homemade paper, paper mache – what else could we do with this resource…?
