Recycled Aluminium Bowls

Recycled Aluminium Bowls | scatol8® | Scoop.it

Recycled aluminium is incredibly eco-friendly. Recycling aluminium saves up to 90% of the carbon emissions needed to produce new aluminium from bauxite, and helps to reduce landfill. These recycled aluminium products are fair trade and finished by hand in India. Each item is highly polished before the colour is applied and allowed to dry. Then they are hand-finished with clear enamel which is then given a final polish. The result is fair trade products with vibrant colours that are practical and decorative gifts for the home.

Recycled Paper Bead Necklace

Recycled Paper Bead Necklace | scatol8® | Scoop.it

The gorgeous coloured beads in this Fair Trade necklace are made by women in Uganda who roll glossy paper from old magazines to make each bead, varnish the beads, and then turn them into beautiful jewellery.

Made by the women of the Kind Mothers Project, an association which was initiated by eight Ugandan mothers who felt touched by the plight of children living under difficult conditions in their country. They realized many children were in dire need of help and they wanted to make a contribution towards improving the situation of these unfortunate and vulnerable children, and help to improve their lives. The money raised from the sale of this hand crafted jewellery helps provide education and better future for these children

Recycled Plastic Truck,

Recycled Plastic Truck, | scatol8® | Scoop.it

Instead of dumping garbage into landfills, rural Nepali women collect discarded chip bags, bottled water packaging, and cookie cases. After thoroughly cleaning the plastic, they slice it into strips and wind these strips around wild grasses called saru. By tying these recycled "straws" together with twine, they're able to mold trays, stools, and bowls. Good for people and the planet.
