To demonstrate the massive and often overlooked amount waste created by free daily papers, an organization called Project Freesheet spent the day collecting copies of the Metro, thelondonpaper, and London Lite left behind by commuters on the Tube.  After collecting 1,500 papers, the group bagged them up and displayed them all in Trafalgar Square.  The event was intended to remind people that leaving papers behind on the train doesn’t equal recycling.
