A functional yet fun pencil case made from recycled juice packs - exactly the right size to hold a 15cm / 6inch ruler and all your favourite pens and pencils.
Approx. 9in/22cm wide, 3.5in/9cm high
These pencil cases are part of a range of bags, purses and accessories made from recycled juice packs - non-biodegradable foil and plastic packaging that would otherwise go into landfill sites and incinerators.
The bags are fairly traded - they are made in the Philippines by a women's cooperative near Manila. The cooperative produces approximately 500,000 bags and household items per year, thus preventing many millions of juice packs from being burnt, buried or simply littering the streets and waterways. The cooperative has won a number of awards in the Philippines for its concern for the environment and its outstanding contribution to waste recycling and employment generation.
