Paper from Rice Straw
Paper can be made from any fibrous plant but the best material is rice straw. Abundant rice
straw go to waste during harvesting time. With a very minimal capital, this agricultural waste
could be a good source of livelihood. Making paper from rice straw can be done even by
children in their homes or as a project in the community. The art of papermaking is being done
since the ancient times in China and Japan where different types of paper such as glossy and
silky ones are produced.
