    If you’re using recycled paper strips, and don’t use large amounts of them, then not necessarily. There are several recipes available for paper mache, and some of them require less paper. Raw flour and water paste is a great one to use less material. Follow the link below for that recipe, as well as others. So, while yes, making paper mache can be wasteful, you can take steps to make it more eco-friendly. In a way, you are recycling because you’re taking used materials and creating some new out of them.

    To add to the above, home made things are almost always better for the environment that mass produced stuff. And much more fun! Since it is paper and flour, it will decompose when you’re done, too.
