Still have too much junk mail — despite your best efforts to reduce the unwanted paper? I’d managed to get the paper waste down to a trickle at my old apartment, but have had to start the de-junking process all over again when I moved. Luckily, I was able to make the long, frustrating process a little more fun — by taking a zen approach to the whole issue: When life gives you junk mail, fold origami!
Thus, here are some recent environmental headlines — illustrated with junk mail:
Taiwan’s EPA found that potty-trained pigs can cut water waste by 80 percent, reports Treehugger.
The timber industry’s fighting a plan to save the northern spotted owl from extinction, according to the AP.
Flipper bands can harm the king penguin population, reports NPR.
A photographer for Wildlife Conservation Society captured rare footage of a Cambodian elephant in the wild.
