I’ve been making good strong paper from pineapple tops from Whole Foods Grocery Stores. It is good strong drawing paper, vigorous erasing may be done on it without it bursting or without a hole being rubbed in it. I am drawing the Whole Foods produce workers on the paper and giving it back to them as a thank you for all the pineapple they have given to me and my papermaking students. The workers are happy to get this “Art”created from what they thought was useless. One worker said her father is trying to make paper and paper bags from potato skins in Mexico. Paper from plants is a great thing over plastic and styrofoam,etc.,etc. I will be making more pineapple paper this year.
