Old News is Good News . . . or at least the paper it’s made of.

Our PR agency's philosophy is based on 'giving back'. As part of our growing efforts with this mission as well as promoting the goodwill of our clients since 1990, we announce our innovative, new line of recycled newspaper products.

Our unique products reuse the earth’s resources. Artisans from third world countries transform recycled newspapers into innovative home décor items: strips of newspaper are wrapped around a single broom bristle, coiled into spiraled square 'building blocks' and reinforced with starch. These squares are pieced together with string and glue to make each ingenious product.

Proceeds will benefit these creative artisans for the rebuilding of their homes and lives, while providing economic opportunity for skilled artisans in Asia, Africa and Latin America. Now, yesterday’s news, which we helped create, is good news and comes full circle to benefit others!

Product Testimonials:

Joanne, Ann Arbor, MI: “These recycled paper products are fantastic. I have both the coasters and the rectagular hot mat on my desk at work. I enjoy the different coloring of each piece and they are a great conversation piece. I use the hot mat as a mat for my laptop computer, it allows a bit of air to circulate beneath the laptop as I'm working!”

Lori, Grayslake, IL: “These mats are so functional - they work great for placemats, especially for kids! They can also be quite colorful and what a great way to recycle!”

Anonymous, Woodstock, IL: “This Nativity is the most beautiful and unique piece of Christmas art I have ever seen. I couldn't be more pleased with my purchase."

Anonymous, Lancaster, CA: “These coasters are wonderful, a great conversation starter!”

Katherine, Boston, MA: “I bought the picture frame on an impluse. I love photographs and normally do not spend so much on a frame, however the unique concept of this piece and its beautiful message of helping women gave me too many reasons not to give in to my impulses!”

Anonymous, Trinity, NC: “These are surprisingly sturdy mats. I thought they may be flexible and bend, but they are strong and stiff. I leave mine out as a decorative item, but also use it as a hot mat. I am purchasing additional ones for gifts.”

Anonymous, Surfside Beach, SC: “I'm very happy with the hot mat I purchased. It's so interesting looking that I leave it out even when I'm not using it.”
