Deforestation is a serious problem

because

forest and trees are not just pretty to look at, they do an important job making the earth´s environment suitable for life. They clean the air, store water, preserve oil, and provide homes for animals. They also supply food, fuel, wood products, and paper products for humans. In the past fifty years, more than half of the world´s rainforests have been destroyed. Today, the forest of the world are being deforestation continues, the world´s climate may change, floods may become more common, and animals will die.

One solution to the problem of deforestation is to use less paper
.
If you use less paper, fewer trees will be cut for paper making.
How can you use less paper?
One answer is to reduce your paper use by using both sides of the paper when you photocopy, write a letter, or write an essay.
A second answer is to reuse old paper when you can, rather than using a new sheet of paper. The backs of old envelopes are perfect for shopping list or phone messages, and you write a rough draft of an essay, write it on the back of something else.
A final answer is to recycle used paper products instead of throwing them away. Most schools, offices, and districts have some kind of recycling center.
