The life cycle of a newspaper might be longer than you think between production and its eventual breaking down. The Re News project suggests a way to give your daily paper better quality of life so that it doesn't spend most of it moving from bin to bin.

Instead, Natalia Coll actually suggests making a bin out of the journals that you've already read. The idea is that you would print instructions from the Internet for folding and weaving strips of the paper together. By overlapping the segments, you end up with the checkered pattern that's reminiscent of a woven basket. Once complete, you can use your Re News pannier as a container for assorted items, or even as a recycling receptacle for other scraps around your home.
