The Real Pay Wall

Written by Thomas Baekdal | 2010-07-29 05:21:32

Newspapers continue to struggle making their printed newspapers profitable (a losing battle), but here is an idea. Why not turn it into a rather nice looking wall covering? This is probably the only pay wall that actually works!

This, at least, is the concept from Weitzner Limited. They cut the newspapers into strips, and weave them together to form a continues roll wallpaper. It is a new way at looking at sustainability, and recycling. But it also create an interesting backdrop for anyone who is in publishing.

At some point, when the printed newspapers go away, they are probably going to run out of source material. But, right now that isn't a problem. The New York Times alone consumes 154,000 metric tons of newsprint paper per year.

That's a lot of wall coverings!
