Journal 3 - Pulp

This book is named Pulp after the pulp that is used to make paper. There are two main types of pulp typically used in the paper making process: wood and cotton. Wood pulp comes from both hardwood and softwood trees. Hardwood trees provide strength, while softwood trees provide bulk in papers. Cotton fibers create the softest, strongest and most durable papers.
