We hate to see things going to waste. Fortunately our clients often come up with great ideas on how our make-ready sheets and off-cuts of paper can be reused before being recycled.

Butterfly Hats, for example, is a series of creative workshops for kids run by our friends at The Secret Seed Society.  David Thomas from Secret Seed says: "Everybody loves hats! So now we teach kids how to make their own, from the colourful paper supplied by Calverts.

We show the kids how anyone can make anything. Anyone can grow anything too. And as a group-activity, making hats is great because the kids and their parents can help each other to make something really fun and odd-looking. Our Secret Seed Society mission to have families growing, eating and cooking together. Togetherness is the main part of our workshops.."

Do you have a great idea on how to reuse waste? Please let us know. Let us know and we'll post your ideas on our blog.
