4 sessions of the project “Litter-free Home with Creative Recycling”, funded by Veolia.
The project includes exercise, education to sustainability and environmental problems, looking after the local community and craft activity.
We will walk around the venue litter-picking for 30 minutes, then we will make creative recycling craft activities focussing on a specific household waste material each time.
1st session – 13/10/17: turn aluminium cans into candle-pots, ashtrays and baskets.
(Please bring along thin cans – those thinner and easier to cut such as from beer).
2nd session – 17/11/17: turn plastic containers and carrier bags into hangers, baskets, carpets and more (Please bring along containers e.g. from shampoos and soaps & carrier bags)
3rd session 15/12/17: turn Tetra-pack boxes into handbags, wallets, place-mats and more.( Please bring tetra-pack cardboard e.g. alternative milk and juice, washed and squeezed)
4th session 19/01/18: painting glass bottles (please bring a clean bottle)
The project lasts 4 months, one session per month on Fridays.
Litter-picking walks might be cancelled last minute in case of very bad weather.
“I think we all have a seed inside of us when we are a child. If you manage to discover the one that is for you, you water it, take care of it, it will flourish; and the flower would be so unique that it wouldn’t look the same as everyone else’s. If you stay true to it, no matter how it turns out, no matter what mistakes you made along the way, at the end of the day, you could say, it was my life and I lived it. Now that I am building up my own path, I take whatever I can find along the way, simply considering whether it is something that allows me to develop further. Money is always secondary. This can be problematic especially when living in a city like London, but I’m happy to live with very little.”
