ProQuo has a great article showing 10 creative responses to junk mail. They include sculptures, portraits, mulch, and… well check out ProQuo for the full list.

  1. My friend Su-Fang in Taipei and her friends and neighbors collect their junk mail and have an origami party. I have some nice origami fish that used to be advertising fliers.

    That ProQuo link doesn’t seem to work.


  2. Thanks Marilyn, it didn’t like the / at the end of the link for some reason, it’s fixed now.

    My origami skills are sadly lacking, but sounds cool! Happy New Year too 🙂
