Where does paper come from? Paper is made from trees. It comes through a process of manufacturing that breaks down the trees in the fibers and then flattens and stretches and then forms those fibers into sheets. then it slices those sheets into the micro thickness that are paper is purchased in.
How do we get different colors of paper? Similar processes of manufacturing are used but at certain intervals in those processes, certain colors of dye are placed with the future paper product so that the dye is mixed in with the tree fibers, which then becomes ingrained within them so that the fibers become bad color of dye.
How are different kinds of paper used? Different kinds of papers have different kinds of applications. some are used for handwriting on, while others are used for machine printing on, and still others are used in handicrafts like making paper airplanes or making paper mache pinatas. An additional use of paper is wiping our non-pleasant ends after taking a dump on the toilet.
There is a debate going on whether or not we should use paper to wipe our rear ends. some say it would be much more sanitary and environmentally friendly to do as is often done in Europe and use a bidet. This miniature shower eliminates the views of paper products during daily defecation. but while it may be more sanitary and encourage cost to cut down less trees oh, it is also more uncomfortable and requires learning the art of spraying oneself off without getting water all over.
