Recyclart Coin Banks

Human ♥ Nature products are all over our homes and offices.  We love their 100% chemical free healthy products that are not only pro-environment, but also pro-country and pro-poor.  We started to think of ways to recycle their packaging and turn these into a livelihood project!

Here are the finished products!  These prototypes were hand-painted by award-winning graphic designer Robert Alejandro.

They do look very artsy together don't they?

Best of all, they don't just look pretty, they do pretty things too!  They help save your money.  Just drop a coin or two each day to save (you'd see the coin bank slot at the back)!

Today an enthusiastic and purposeful artist and craftsman, Robert Alejandro, talked to us about his upcycled work from discarded Yakult and Human Nature bottles.  These hand drawn works of art took Robert two hours to paint while watching TV and amidst other distractions. And there are more ideas in his head which he describes as "bursting". He finds the ultimate fulfillment when they are realized. A brilliant morning with a brilliant artist. #upcycle #humannature #papelmelroti #artbottle — with Robert Alejandro and Anna Gamboa at Adobo Magazine. (October 23, 2015)
