A sustainable responsible approach to life requires that humans adopt a conservative approach to resource usage.

While it is appreciated that Mr Goldsmith plans to recycle the paper used in his art exhibit, reduction of usage is more important than post-usage recycling.

Chemicals harmful to the environment are used in the production of paper, and the recycling of paper, not to mention the amount of plastic and ink waste from toner cartridges, ink cartridges and other non-paper related supplies which may pollute the landfill.

      While the idea has artistic merit as conceptual art, it is the kind of art that can be created and enjoyed solely as a concept. You don't need to actually do it, you only need to say "Print out the Internet!" Taking the time and resources to actually do it suggests a lack of other ideas, a paucity of creativity. Some conceptual artists a publishing an idea a day.

      Don't you understand that they grow trees specifically for use for the creation of paper??

      Without paper, there would actually be LESS trees...

      I don't agree with the waste of paper. As the petition says, recycling doesn't justify wasting paper.
