I was taken to visit this project by a Nicaraguan friend and highly recommend that travelers to Esteli take the time to visit as well. You won''t be sorry and will come home with a wonderful story and photos to share. This project is about what a group of women accomplished in cleaning up an area that was being used as a garbage dump and polluting the local stream where their children were playing. The result is an eco friendly project that recycles junk mail and office paper into beautiful homemade products that help create sustainability for continuing to keep the area clean and safe. The inexpensive paper journals, bookmarks and prints they create make lovely and meaningful souvenirs that help to support and empower the local citizens. There is a colorful mural on the side of the building that documents the work of the women and also the children who are benefiting from this project. If you get a chance to meet Kenny Ellwanger who helps oversee the project, he will show you around and tell you the story. Seeing their project inspired me to include a recycling project in my own work in the United States.
