Makedo is a company that creates great little play toys for children using packaging. By providing kits that interlock pieces of packaging the Makedo company has created a community of people who make wonderful creations using material that, in most cases, would be thrown in the bin.
Now the company have focused their attention on coffee time with this set of animal themed coffee cups.
The idea is that using one of the packages a child can make a range of animals from Monkey to Chicken, using old paper coffee cups.
The company is carbon neutral and the idea of teaching children to reuse waste material is something that seems to getting a lot of attention around the world.
The Brazilian chef from O Bar da Dona Onça and A Casa do Porco in São Paulo has been recognised for her outstanding contribution to the restaurant industry and her role in driving positive change in her community.
