Upcycled Print

Newspapers are creatively repurposed to form artworks and tools

Implications - Society’s movement towards a more eco-friendly environment becomes clearer each day as artists and designers alike are looking for different ways to go green. Taking an often recycled medium such as newsprint and repurposing it into a variety of useful tools and artworks, companies are showing their support towards the eco movement and therefore appealing to consumers who have the same mindset.
