What do you do when you’re finished with the newspaper?
Hopefully, you recycle it.
But before it hits the recycling bin, consider these uses:
Keep the bottom of your vegetable drawer clean by lining it with newspaper. It will absorb liquid and odors. Change the paper weekly.
Use newspaper to ripen fruit. If your avocados, bananas, peaches or other fruits need ripening, conventional wisdom is to put them in a paper bag. The paper keeps in the ethylene gas—a ripening agent—the fruit gives off. If you don’t have a paper bag, wrap the fruit in newspaper, which does the same thing.
After you read it, recycle it. Photo by
