We know we use a lot of paper in school, but just how much? See what Alina says:

At the end of the school year, I was cleaning out my binders, folders, etc., and stacking all of the paper I had used during the entire year into one pile. When I was done, I looked at the pile. It was over 6 inches tall! And I didn't even need it anymore! So I was wondering how I could use less paper this year and be more eco-friendly.

Interesting question. Regina from New York has an idea:

I think that teachers and professors should make all of the homework and tests digital. Sure, it might cost more than a pencil and paper, but if we want our earth to stay clean, I feel it's worth it.

Digital school sounds cool to me! I say we try it.
