We talk a lot about what we do – the need to reduce waste to landfill, to cultivate respect for the environment and the labour of those that process raw materials into the textiles we wear. (See the recent interview with ABC radio)
We recycle not only because of the above, but because we believe in our community and the need to build social capital. That is why we use recycling as a vehicle to provide opportunities to people potentially marginalised either through circumstances or abilities.
We can’t do this alone, we need the ongoing support of our community to have a legitimate reason for existence. If you want to help us recycle and provide an income to our artisans at the same time, please either purchase a Paperworks product or make a tax deductible donation before 30 June to Paperworks Inc.
