Purple Buddha Project

Purple Buddha Project is a sweet large-scale upcycling project directed by Forest Curran, in which local artisans in Cambodia and Laos will turn bombshells into jewelry. This is an incredibly important endeavor not only because it will help to clear over 5 million tons of war waste from the country, but also because the jewelry produciton will create opportunities for disadvantaged and disabled artisans to receive fair-trade wages.

There is an informational video from their Kickstarter page as well. (I’ve tried to embed it in this post, but something keeps going wrong and I’m not sure why…) Luckily this project has raised enough money to be officially funded on March 5th.
