Prompt: create a stool from recycled materials that promotes environmentalism

To avoid causing further harm to the environment by discarding hundreds of excess NJIT newspapers, they are now used as an advocate for environmental sustainability. The Editor-in-Chief of a local newspaper curated this stool to be made and portray the newspapers as they were in their native form, wood. Symbolized by a wooden stump, the noticeable rings from the layering of the newspapers coincide with the rings in wood that are markers of time. The stool has the unique ability to expand and grow as time progresses with the addition of new newspapers.
