Sustainability Comes in Pairs:
Recycled chopsticks to lifestyle objects
ChopValue Singapore saves used disposable chopsticks from incineration and transforms them into a valuable carbon-locking resource – embracing second chances to serve the community anew.
In collaboration with ChopValue Singapore, Nextofkin Creatives (NOK) has designed a collection of whimsical mini wooden toys that imagine a second life for these recycled chopsticks. The use of animal imagery plays on the idea of breathing new life to the wood and transforming the original commodity to a cherished possession of enduring value.
