30 Sep Made on Earth: Paper
Every day we see and use hundreds of physical objects which have become so integrated into our lives that they’ve become so matter-of-fact that we hardly notice them. In this eight-part series Babita Sharma and Finn Aberdein explore how these important products are produced and processed so that we can appreciate what goes into the things we take for granted every day.
In the first episode, Bebita and Finn explore a product that you are guaranteed to come across every day: paper. Despite the rise of technology, the international paper industry is thriving. They explore where paper first come from and how those age-old techniques are still used in one form or another in modern paper mills.
