A New Home In London?
Treehugger has some great photographs of a house made from recycled newspapers:
Londoner’s have three free newspapers foisted on them every day in the streets. This adds up to a lot of waste and a lot of people are getting pretty upset by it. As a response to this litter, and as a political statement about “making something high-quality out of something that has no value”, Sumer Erek has created a five metre high Newspaper House out of all the discarded free papers around. The house has been “built” in a London square. Along with numerous volunteers, he has been constructing it out of donated papers for the past five days. Using almost 150,000 discarded free papers carefully packed inside a wooden frame for the construction, people were encouraged to write their own thoughts and wishes on the paper before it was rolled into “logs”.
