The Source | Bombay Paperie

Walk in to gape at the massive antique wooden table right in the centre with all paper products on display – as if it were an island on its own; stacks of paper lined on the sides and graded by colour – as if gazing at a rainbow so near;  colonial architecture holding various exhibits of paper and paper products – as if to belong together; further in (by this time I have already decided my favourite spot) to the back and then to the corner is a dedicated section flaunting images of the craftsmen at the mill, their work in progress and a showcase of the different processes in the making of the paper – as if inside a museum making a connection felt through the story they are trying to tell —- Bombay Paperie – where paper is made without cutting trees and sold planting just love.

The Second Life_ Waste for change

The Second Life-03

To expect a third party to save the environment is passé, when everyone of us can help the cause by reusing things of daily requirements

Well…. we are glad someone is thinking and thinking right and thats why we absolutely love the ideology and products of “The Second Life”  by StudioABCD.

The Second Life is an honest attempt at making products and stationery, reusing and recycling the most basic items like the newspaper- that keeps piling up to be given to the scrap dealer after it’s everyday read; and film posters – that are printed way more than really required. The whole idea is to find and create an alternative & sustain it by adding value to it – – almost like giving it another lifeline!!!

“Every time we dispose a product and call it ‘waste’ we also dispose the energy spent on making it… it must be our conscious responsibility to step out of the system of ‘disposable culture’ and enter a cycle of living with absorbing systems.” 

They block print on newspaper and film poster backs and have a range of stationery that includes wrapping papers, envelopes and notebooks. We totally encourage the idea!

P.S. Love the Up-cycled Film Poster Envelope!
