For kids that like to doodle and practice their writing. Our quality thick notepads have a plain front cover so kids can personalise them and a little note at the back explaining that they are made from recycled receipts. Paired up with a trio of our twig pencils they made a lovely plastic-free eco keep sake for your party.
Twig pencils – We source our unique twig pencils from a dedicated Fairtrade wholesaler. The pencils are crafted from natural tamarind tree branches in Thailand by a small family business. Our supplier has visited the family personally to ensure its eco credentials and its Fairtrade status.
Note pads – made from old till receipts and beautifully recycled into these great little note books. We purchase these from an environmentally responsible and ethically sourced promotional merchandise specialist in the UK. A perfect companion to the twig pencils.
Party Bag – Our newspaper bags are made by an NGO whose main objective is to provide education and shelter to street children. This eco-friendly product is made from recycled Indian newspaper. The organisation was started in 2004 by street children who wanted to give something back in return for the opportunities which had allowed them to escape desperate circumstances. These elder children, now with children of their own, generate an income by making newspaper bags and jute items. This allows them to take care of the children that they have taken in from the streets surrounding New Delhi train station. Support for this wonderful project means that these children can enjoy going to school and playing, rather than pulling rickshaws, shoe polishing, rag picking and worse.
The newspapers are either in Indian language or English. They are made from recycled newspapers, this is why sometimes your bag will have a completed crossword!
Eco Hero Card – Bright and fun card to keep that comes with a wordsearch game and fun tips to help kids become eco heroes.
