Grade 5 Field Trip to the Paper Making Factory

Grade 5 went on a fieldtrip to the paper making factory in Grigiškės. We found out that the toilet paper is made  from recycling paper into giant rolls about 2 meters high that weigh 1.5 tons each. Some of the rolls were pink. There is one robot that cost 1.6 million litas that helps transport the huge paper rolls. There is also a robot that cuts big rolls into smaller ones.  All machines were from France. The robots could do work by themselves. We had a special vest to show we were visitors. It was very noisy and the machines vibrated everything. There was lots of dust!

In this fieldtrip we learned how paper is made and that by saving paper we get to save the trees, which provide us with oxygen.
