The importance of this study is to promote the value of reducing the paper consumption of students in school. The researchers chose this study to help Grade 12 Accountancy, Business, and Management (ABM)students to reduce their paper consumption and practice recycling used paper, and turn it into something useful. Students and teachers consumed a considerable amount of paper, especially when doing school works. This phenomenon also results in a large volume of paper waste inside the classroom, Hence, the researchers came up with this study to help the school administrator in reducing paper waste in school. The researchers used a descriptive research design that describes the characteristics of the population or phenomenon that is being studied. The respondents of the study were 50Grade 12 ABM students that were selected through the convenience sampling technique. Based on the results of the study, using the 3R process effectively reduces the paper consumption of Grade 12 ABM students in terms of 3R. (1) Reduce –The students used their paper properly. They made sure that all pages are used before buying new sets of notebooks or pads of paper. (2) Reuse –Students reused papers that are still useful in their class activities or projects, which lessened their expenses and reduced paper wastes inside the room. (3) Recycle –Students learned how to be creative and resourceful. It also helped them lessen their expenses by selling a product by using recycled papers, and the money that they saved was used to pay other expenses in our school. To effectively reduce the paper consumption in school, the following recommendations are proposed: (1) reduce –avoid the replacement of paper for a simple mistake and use paper wisely when doing paper works, (2) reuse –reuse pads or notebooks that are not yet consumed and used it up to its last page, and (3) recycle –recycle paper and turn it into something useful in daily activities to lessen paper wastes.
