Manama,April,05: Qatar Green Building Council (QGBC) has called for individuals and Qatar-based organisations to take part in an initiative to reduce paper waste in the country, estimated at 5.4 million sheets of paper a day. Under the ‘No Paper Day Qatar’ campaign, participants record the amount of paper they use in a day and compare it with the amount they save on April 4. Participants are also encouraged to ‘upcycle’ used paper products into creative projects, such as weaved baskets or paper flowers. The council said that it expected “more than a dozen organisations and countless individuals to participate in the day.” Source:Qatar Chronicle
