” Ricoh Ireland is today announcing a new partnership with ReCreate, a social enterprise which diverts end of line and surplus stock from businesses in Ireland and reuses them as arts materials at its Creative Resource Centre in Ballymount, Dublin.
ReCreate encourages children to engage in open-ended play through creating art from end of line , surplus or excess materials from businesses . Its educational mission is to increase creativity, curiousity and lateral thinking, while simultaneously raising awareness of sustainability and reuse. The holistic philosophy of the project means that there are benefits for everyone; schools save money on art materials, businesses save money on disposal of materials, landfill is reduced, while stimulating creativeness and resourcefulness at the same time. “
