Recycling paper is great, but before you recycle it, get one more use out of it. Turn it over and print on that side, take notes, make a grocery list, shred it for packing material, make art projects, etc.

 My work still uses cover sheets to separate print jobs. I gather up those sheets, along with other one-sided papers I get (at work, junk mail, etc), and cut the sheets in half, then 3-hole punch them, and use the non-printed side as a small notebook (8.5" x 5.5"). I have plenty of paper, and I'll never have to buy another notebook for work. I can send more details, if someone is interested.
