We stumbled upon a few recycled treasures at Mornington Racecourse Marketthis morning
Ruti is 26 years old, born and raised in Jerusalem, currently studying Occupational Therapy in the city of Haifa, Israel.
She has always loved art – painting, sculpting, photographing, designing, beading and more.
In recent years she has been drawn to the magic of folding recycled paper and creating various works of art with them.
This kind of art combines her passion for shaping and color-matching, with her love for nature, while attempting to preserve and reuse pre-existing materials.
Ruti’s colorful stylish products can add a lot of grace and peace to a home or work environment.
Facts and figures sourced from around the net
“It takes 70% less energy to make recycled paper, and 95% less energy to make recycled aluminium cans than it does when using new raw materials. It takes 125 plastic milk bottles to make one 140 litre recycled plastic wheelie bin.” source City of Port Phillip Community Environment eHub
“Aluminium and steel cans, glass bottles, PET bottles, and most cardboard are made from recycled materials and are usually recyclable after use. Choose items with this kind of packaging rather than packaging made entirely from virgin raw materials. It’s important to buy recycled as this creates a demand for recycled materials and supports the recycling industries.” source PlanetArk
“When we do not recycle at least our glass or aluminum we cost the earth in power usage, water and oil usage and landfill usage; glass takes up to 4000 years to decompose in a landfill yet can be recycled indefinitely.” source Environment Green
“If 300,000 people would stop junk mail coming to their home, they could save half a million trees.”
We have our first featured seller interview with Barbara and Amy, of Siamese Dream Design.
We love working with the different ethnic groups, helping the women keep their culture alive by turning their age old traditions into modern products and marketing them to a global audience, thereby providing them with financial stability. As we grow, it is our goal that our work will reach a large enough audience that we will be able to further diversify the ethnic groups we work with.
