TIN CAN TREE (article first published : 1999-11-4)

ArtWorks Trust administers a self-help creative recycling achievement programme titled SCRAP in which the organisation shares ideas with unemployed youth for saleable items to make from waste. ArtWorks Trust also teaches the budding entrepreneurs the skills needed to produce these items and helps to promote and market the work.

One of their most successful ideas is the SCRAP Christmas tree. Compact and stable, the trees are skilfully and creatively recycled from used beer and soft drink cans. They are suitable for offices and reception areas and make unusual and engaging gifts and attractive decorations for Christmas functions. Heights range from 30cm (R30) or 50cm (R50) to 70cm (R70). Extras such as stars and boxes are also available and the trees can be varnished or painted green. They can also be ordered from cans of one or two colours, cans of a single brand or painted in colours of the customerís choice (paint to be supplied).

For details contact ArtWorks Trust on Telephone/Fax (031) 301-2925 or write to PO Box 62054, Bishopsgate, 4008. E-mail: artworx@iafrica.com
