The World’s First Instant Newspaper Recycler | Saatchi & Saatchi Hong Kong

Saatchi & Saatchi Hong Kong created World’s first Instant Newspaper Recycler for Sun Hung Kai. It’s said that the amount of wrapping paper used in Hong Kong during Chinese New Year results in as many as 1,600 trees being cut down, and 170,000 litres of petrol burned. To put that in context, the height of all those trees put together would stretch from the Earth to an altitude 3 times that a commercial airplane flies at. So Sun Hung Kai’s (SHK) East Point City decided to make an environmentally-friendly difference this year with The Instant Newspaper Recycler. The Campaign was created and executed by Saatchi & Saatchi Hong Kong. Feature

Burroughs’ photography is a bit more chaotic as they’re from his personal collection; arguably this aesthetic mirrors the frenzied nature of his books. Feature
