2008 Paper Recycling Rate in Singapore

To my surprise, paper, the commonly used and easily found materials has less than 50% of them recycled. That means that the other 50% of the papers and cardboards are gone with the flames.

The Paper Jewels Brief

project description

Going green is a growing trend in recent years. Singapore’s effort, however, is often lacking behind many other developed countries.

One of the recent efforts is to save resources in workplaces, examples, print on double side and reuse recycled papers. Papers have been reused and recycled in many different ways. But what can you do by yourself? They aren’t just turning into aesthetically unpleasing scrap notebooks after one time use. They ought to have a second life.

This project aims to reuse paper from a more personal level and transform them into paper wearable. The second part of this project explores the complexity of paper structure, how far the properties of paper can be stretched. Lastly, the project shall complete with a campaign to create awareness and educate the public.

target audience

This would ideally attract both women and men who wear jewelries and conscious about the recycling for the Mother Earth.
