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.
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.
