John and Dana of Frequency555.com met up with Brian Parks, creator of Kwytza Chopstick Baskets, and Reena Kazmann, owner of Eco-Artware.com. Brian's folding basket design uses recycled chopsticks and he has even been featured on the popular ABC television show, "Shark Tank." Brian sells his product online at www.Eco-Artware.com. Reena created Eco-Artware.com 12 years ago and has been selling goods made from recycled materials in order to promote sustainable consumer practices.
We Heart DC Entrepreneurs presents the story of Reena Kazmann, the owner and founder of Eco-Artware.com, an online art eco gift store offering well-made and eco-friendly jewelry and gifts that showcases functional crafts made by artists committed to sustainability.
Well, I agree with you -- but part of the "gift" experience is to make it look special, somehow, I think. If you are going to pitch newspapers, or paper bags, for instance, why not use them to wrap presents. Wrap creates the element of surprise. A luxury--but if you have supplies that don't add to the waste pile, why not?
So glad this moves you to move on to new options. We also did a video on very attractive ways to wrap gifts with newspaper. (You'll find it on the same channel). Lots of choices.
Sounds as though JJ has a nice personality and kindly approach to children. I'd like to see a sample of what he'd like to produce for children--how much activity there would be in it.
Sweet song! It would make a great singalong with a group of people. Nice sounds on unusual instruments! What's a strumstick and is it homemade too?
Lovely song. Interesting to watch too -- beautifully done. Congratulations.
