Recently, convenience stores and shopping malls all around Thailand have started to ban plastic bags in order to help save the environment. But, we still get lots of shopping bills from almost every store, which we always end up throwing away. 

To decrease the number of unwanted trash while supporting disadvantaged children in Thailand, the Conservation Club from Mahidol University launched a campaign inviting people to donate their shopping receipts to be recycled into notebooks instead.

Even if you are not a shopaholic, you’d still get tons of receipts from convenience stores and eateries all around.

The Conservation Club from Mahidol University not only takes in shopping receipts, but also all types of paper that is not wanted.
