Here at Dapple HQ we only use recycled Paper Towels to wipe our hands, and recycled Toilet Paper to..... well I'm sure you can figure it out. We got a new batch of both today, and I wanted to share something that most people don't know about recycling...... how paper is recycled!
Once recyclable paper is collected, it is compacted into bales and transported to the mill. At the mill, it is mixed with hot water to make soup; steamy, hot, and delicious recycling soup. The soup is purified using screens and filters, then is washed to remove inks. After cleaning, the pulp is pressed, dried, and converted into paper, cardboard, or take out containers (not limited to these three)! That is how recycling works! RECYCLE!!!!
