Recycling materials to create our own packaging is at the heart of Yaansoon’s philosophy. Why add more litter to the world, when we can turn it to a functional piece of art or packaging?
The packaging of the tree-branch push pins I mentioned in a previous post, is very interesting. See the triangle cardboard boxes below? These are actually made from protective packaging used by IKEA to wrap their HYLLIS garden shelving unit.
These shelves come with some really useful packaging. Actually all Ikea packaging is useful. We have recycled many cardboard items into packaging for Yaansoon. We also upcycle paper and other materials to package our handmade products, like glass jars, fabric, and metal.
