Which is your way?

Are you about to throw away your shoe boxes?

I am sure that many girls (like me) love buying shoes: flats, heels, boots. We will never stop buying, and there is always no ‘ENOUGH’ comes to our mind. So here’s the question, what do you do with those shoe boxes?

Throwing away? Since there is limited stroage space at home?

Or just asking for no box when you buy the shoes (anyway, I will not do that..)

SincerelyShans has posted a pretty cool video on YouTube and sharing her way of upcycling the shoe boxes.

Finally, we can ‘get rid of’ these shoe boxes.. in a more fun way:)

Let us see your creative work green artists, and I’m sure it will be amazing!

Loving all things creative?

It is no way that I keep repeating how bad the situation we are in Australia regarding the pollution problem.

What I want to addrees here is more about ‘lovely‘, ‘fantastic‘, ‘awesome‘ and ‘wonderful‘.

CREATIVE definitely.

Let’s see what Sarah’s sustainable tips of the week are:

It is not asking you to be a superhero and save the world for the rest of us. It is just saying that a little help will actually do a lot if you keep the habit. You will never know how powerful you can be until you really try. I believe, if there are more ‘a little spakle in life’, the environment will be brighter:) So, guys, start from today, start from YOU.

Join us and be a green artists like many others do!!!

Greate campaign to follow. There are many moon cake box left after the festival, and we just throw most of them away. If we can do some recycle and upcycle of these boxes, we will help maintain a cleaner environment. Creative people, this is your turn!

the Justist

Some 54,000 mooncake boxes will not go to landfill thanks to an environmental drive to collect for recycling the metal tins and cardboard boxes that contain the traditional treat.

The Moon Cake Box Recycling 2014 campaign, that was spearheaded by the Housing Authority in July, collected 16 tonnes of discarded containers.

Mooncakes are traditional treats often given as gifts during the mid-autumn festival.

The Housing Authority set up more than 170 collection points for mooncake boxes at its headquarters at Fat Kwong Street, Kowloon; the HA Customer Service Centre in Lok Fu, Kowloon; public rental housing (PRH) estate offices; shopping centres and markets throughout the city.

Why doing this, Australia?

You do recycle, you do put recyclable cans and bottles in the recycle bins.  BUT, have you ever thought of landfill in the end they went to?

This is what i found on Google image. Landfill is not going to solve the problem completely.

Few of us can realize there is a limited space of landfill. Do you like the smell of landfill or do you want to see landfill outside your window instead of beautiful green trees and flowers?

The answer will be NO!

No one likes to live in the neighborhood with landfill nearby, let alone many health issue may be leaded by excessive landfills.

So what we gonna do with ‘boring recycling’ issue?

Creative recycling will be the right answer!  Such as:
