We stock a range of environmentally-friendly products created from green recycled computer circuit boards.
• Cut into shape by a cutting machine, they are always hand-finished to create the final product.
• So, why not make an environmental difference in the way you buy your gifts and take into account the escalating need for the three R’s – Reduce, Reuse & Recycle?
• Handmade by skilled Fair Trade artisans in New Delhi, India from Tara Projects.

DID YOU KNOW?
Known as printed circuit board (or PCBs) most are produced in large volumes by electronics manufacturers and ultimately become either obsolete or fail control checks,
after which they are incinerated or dumped into landfill sites.
It is these circuit boards that are rescued and used to make these unique gift items.
The boards are single sided with a beige coloured back. They are lightweight.
