News is Good News . . . or at least the paper its made of.
PR agency's philosophy is based on 'giving back'. As part of our
growing efforts with this mission as well as promoting the goodwill
of our clients since 1990, we announce our innovative, new line
of recycled newspaper products.
Our unique products reuse the
earths resources. Artisans from third world countries
transform recycled newspapers into innovative home décor
items: strips of newspaper are wrapped around a single broom bristle,
coiled into spiraled square 'building blocks' and reinforced with
starch. These squares are pieced together with string and glue to
make each ingenious product.
Proceeds will benefit these creative artisans for the rebuilding
of their homes and lives, while providing economic opportunity for
skilled artisans in Asia, Africa and Latin America. Now, yesterdays
news, which we helped create, is good news and comes full
circle to benefit others!

Joanne, Ann Arbor, MI: These
recycled paper products are fantastic. I have both the coasters
and the rectagular hot mat on my desk at work. I enjoy the different
coloring of each piece and they are a great conversation piece.
I use the hot mat as a mat for my laptop computer, it allows a bit
of air to circulate beneath the laptop as I'm working!
Lori, Grayslake, IL: These mats are so functional -
they work great for placemats, especially for kids! They can also
be quite colorful and what a great way to recycle!
Anonymous, Woodstock, IL: This Nativity is the most
beautiful and unique piece of Christmas art I have ever seen. I
couldn't be more pleased with my purchase."
Mary, Richmond, VA: As
soon as I saw this Nativity, I knew I had to buy it. It's an amazing
display and is extremely well crafted. Very unique and a delight
Anonymous, Lancaster, CA:
These coasters are wonderful, a great conversation starter!
Katherine, Boston, MA: I
bought the picture frame on an impluse. I love photographs and normally
do not spend so much on a frame, however the unique concept of this
piece and its beautiful message of helping women gave me too many
reasons not to give in to my impulses!
Anonymous, Trinity, NC:
These are surprisingly sturdy mats. I thought they may be
flexible and bend, but they are strong and stiff. I leave mine out
as a decorative item, but also use it as a hot mat. I am purchasing
additional ones for gifts.
Anonymous, Surfside Beach, SC:
I'm very happy with the hot mat I purchased. It's so interesting
looking that I leave it out even when I'm not using it.
Anonymous, Bassett, VA:
I love this hot mat. Personally, I don't use it as a hot mat
but as a decorative mat under a vase. It is very unique.
