Recycled Newspaper to Stylish Bags

Two weeks ago, I lectured at this public highschool in Quezon City, upon the invite of the Inner Wheel group (wives of Rotary Club members) headed by Miss Chit Reyes.

Now, Miss Chit had this beautiful bag with her, and I was surprised to learn that it’s made from recycled newspaper.

Her bag’s the one at the left-most, chic, isnt it? Now, the others are as pretty as the first one.

More designs above. This time a bit native looking.

And know what’s best about the bags, aside from the fact that they’re made from old newspapers, they’re also made by our friends from the National Mental Hospital. So, if you want to help them, go visit them, and buy some bags.

You help them, and you help the environment as well.

    Hi Dex, thanks.. and more success to you too. In our little way, may we be able to help our people, our country, and our planet… all it takes is to spread the word so there’d be more environmentally-aware people πŸ™‚ Thanks again. πŸ™‚

    That is very cool! I hope more people will become aware of these products and start using them more. We need more people like you who are passionate about making a positive change in our behavior towards the environment. I’d love to help out. i wish you (and all of us, for that matter) more success!
