Hello!
So the other day while I was drinking coffee and reading the newspaper. I realized how much newspaper gets thrown away each day! so I was wondering if it would work to replace my straw with newspaper shreddings? I took a stroll down to the coffee shop who said they would give me old newspapers for free! I then sat down and thought about how perhaps the ink would be bad for the chickens but then again we touch the newspaper all the time?
If you use newspaper for a bedding or if you think it'd be safe please tell me cause it could safe me some money!
Thanks!

Are you thinking of shredding it?

Actually newspaper is one of the easiest things to recycle, most recycling centers take them.

I don't take the paper anymore but am still using some really old ones to line the bottom of the paper grocery bags I use in the kitchen garbage can.
