Newspaper House

A house has been built by artist Sumer Erek out of newspapers in London, UK, to highlight the growing scandal of 'freesheets'. More than 4 million newspapers are handed out free and discarded in the city each day. The underground trains alone have to cope with 9.5 tonnes of them daily. Using newspapers collected by Project Freesheet and the transport companies, the newspaper house is a public art project, which is helping to raise awareness of everyone's responsibility to treat paper as something more than toss-away rubbish. Brilliant. There's a blog about it and a video.
