The Close to my Heart catalog can be recycled. Once the catalog arrives at the recycling center, the paper is shredded and mixed with water. Manufacturers use the resulting pulp to make other products, including facial tissue, notebook paper and paper bags.
The Close to my Heart catalog can also be recycled by using it for other craft projects, such as mosaics or paper flowers. The pages can be used as wrapping paper or book covers. Subscribers can crumple or shred the paper and use it as packing material. The catalog should be clean and dry before taking it to a recycling center or using it for another project.
