On my little commute into central London this morning I noticed the Metro newspapers scattered in every train carriage and on the station and it made me think... how many thousands of Metro's are thrown away every day? There must be a better was of using all this paper than simply throwing it away. My boyfriend recycled some of his old NME magazines he had lying around by revamping his guitar. So, instead of throwing your newspaper away or sorting it into recycling bins, recycle it a little closer to home.
It can be as simple or as complicated as you like, and almost anything can be transformed with a few pages of newspaper and a little sprinkling of creativity. Here are some of the ideas other people have come up with to recycle newspapers and put them to good use on Etsy.com to get your creative juices flowing...
