These colourful pencil pots are part of a range of recycled paper items handmade by Earthbound Creations in Sri Lanka. Earthbound Creations is a social enterprise which tries to minimise the environmental damage caused by the overuse and unsustainability of plastics and so only use eco-friendly recycled paper to create stunning gifts.
Many of their artisans are homeworkers. This arrangement allows access to work to those who may be mothers, disabled or of an older age, allowing them to still provide for themselves and others.
Earthbound Creations are committed to helping their community as much as possible. and have already helped over 250 families and reduced the migration of women as labourers into towns or overseas destinations.
Each item is handmade and by purchasing one of our newspaper items you are helping provide work that benefits Earthbound Creations' workers and the environment.
