What a great post! It is great to see the idea of recycling becoming so commercialized. I enjoy seeing other go green. It is a step in the right direction and will greatly benefit the earth. Hopefully this artwork inspires other to make the step to go green. Great pictures, inspiring post. Thank you for sharing!

What glue did she use in making Newspaper Wood?
Did she spray it on to decrease time needed to make a roll?
I have many piles of old newpapers I'd love to turn into something useable about the house.
Thank you and regards,

Should men be able to give birth to children?

Lisa Mandemaker: Using an artificial womb could lead to more equality between sexes, but also between different family layouts. If men would be able to give birth to children, it would maybe be easier for male same-sex couples to have a child together.
