Although the global awareness on environmental issues has increased tremendously, only a minute percentage of people have consciously changed their consumption patterns. Not that they don’t want to, but probably these products don’t add up to their coolness factor or their standards per se.
Nevertheless, we just don’t give up. We at The White Light, continue to find solutions to cater to the ‘likes’ of people, with bombastic designs, convince them to make the ultimate switch to conscious buying.
Our upcycled handcrafted gift bag is another one of our creations. Newspapers block printed and converted into super chic carry bags. Would you buy it or suggest it to anyone who cares enough?
There are numerous artists whose work of art is inspirational and people spend hours in art galleries to analyze and admire their paintings and sculptures. We do the same thing, just that we particularly appreciate artists like Haroshi, from Japan, who create artwork from discarded materials. Haroshi’s passion to upcycle discarded skateboards into intricate work of art emerged from his infatuation for skateboards in his early teens.
The work of art speaks for itself, the complex, yet immaculate finish has left us in awe. If more artists emerge like him, who can convert waste into the extraordinary, the world will become a more beautiful place, aesthetically and environmentally.
