Recycled Plastic Silver Votive Candle Holders
This unique candle box with 4 candle holders has been handcrafted in Nepal by artisans in the remote mountain villages of Lapa, Tipling and Shertung. It is made using discarded plastic wrappers from snack wrappers like potato chips etc. brought in from the cities. Recycling programs have been started in the villages to encourage the collection of the non biodegradable "trash" and to educate about the importance of protecting the natural ecology. It can be a meaningful gift to anybody that understands the importance of recycling and knows how creative we all can be by turning waste into something beautiful and meaningful! This item comes in assorted colors and in silver. Net proceeds from the purchase of this gift fund primary healthcare and community education in Himalaya.
