Description (displayed with the short name and URL.)
||The largest urban wood source is newspaper and junk mail.
||There is already an adequate solution to the reuse of urban paper waste though. Much of the material that I am talking about will end up in a tip somewhere.
||Fruit-crate furniture was baked in the Great Depression. Now, you can buy furniture that just _looks_ like it was made from old fruit crates.
