Supervisor Mrs. Dr. Ir Suswati MP makes paper waste creations into a night lamp
The increasingly rapid digital era does not necessarily reduce the need for paper. Paper is an inseparable part of human life that is increasingly advanced and developing. Universities are fast paper users. The high use of paper causes big problems for the environment. Through the real work of lecturers and students of the Faculty of Agriculture by involving youth groups who are members of the Vienna craft (Vc) campus paper waste can be processed into various value-added products. Utilization of paper waste is carried out through a recycling process through the application of 3R, namely Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. Through the skilled hands of teenagers who are members of the Vienna group, campus paper waste has been successfully created into various craft materials that have selling values, such as: tissue holder , photo frame, night lamp and pencil case (Figure 1a, b, c, d).
By processing paper recycling, the assisted groups get various benefits including: increasing income, reducing environmental waste, saving energy, and helping the world from global warming. Let’s Save the Earth With Paper Waste Creations.
