The arrival of migrating birds to Europe from Africa is declining rapidly and at this rate, many species will be wiped out from the UK if we don’t do something about it fast.  Numbers are decreasing each year because of a possible accumulation of several issues, but loss of habitat and climate change are most certainly the main factors.  The loss of trees means loss of habitat, nesting, and food.

 

Recycled magazine pages were glued in layers to revert them into a wood like material to sculpt ‘Paper Eggs.’

I often use books as a material to work with but recently I've been recycling magazines too. Although magazines use words and pictures to communicate similar to books they often deliver current issues which become yesterdays news, making them a very disposable product. I prefer to use the unwanted magazines to make something that can last a lot longer.
