If you’re wondering about what to do with your used paper and junk mail, why not use them for origami – the traditional Japanese art of paperfolding.

A simple piece of paper can be folded into various models – from insects, animals, birds, flowers to useful objects such as envelopes, CD cases, coasters, chopstick cases and photo frames.

    Hi there,

    I’m writing from an events management company and was wondering if you provide workshops on recycling at home for families and children. We require a demonstration of approx 1 hr (2 hrs the most) for a family day that is environmental-related and was hoping you’d be able to provide us with a quotation and a list of your services.

    Please contact me at your earliest convenience at my email address ariane@roxwell.com.sg

    Thanks, and happy new year.
