The folks at Green Veranda, working directly with 32 ladies in a brazilian design coop, have found a way to turn all of those leftover, unrecycled newspapers into accessories and home decor. From clutches, to eco-square totes and full-moon handbags, the ladies have found a great way to give a new life to some of the millions of newspapers printed daily. That's not all that the ladies at Green Veranda can make out of newspapers.
The newspapers themselves are collected from area Brazilian papers that either have misprints or over prints, or from area businesses that don't sell the papers by the end of the day. Green Veranda has found a way to reuse all of the paper (trees) that go into making newspapers, but the company is also dedicated to replacing those trees and plants a tree for every purchase made. In addition, with your purchase, you can choose to donate a percentage of the profits made from that item to several social and environmental charities.:Green Veranda
