Recycled Aluminum KidKnits Tag
This recycled aluminum KidKnits tag is the same tag that is included in each KidKnits kit. They are made by Uhunzi, which is located in Nairobi, Kenya. Uhunzi is all about using recycled materials and the process that they use to make each tag is amazing. The tags start as trash - aluminum cans in the slums of Nairobi. People who collect the aluminum cans sell them to Uhunzi, and can make a living doing so! Once they have the cans, Uhunzi melts them using recycled engine oil as fuel. They are cast in molds made from recycled sand from glass factories. Each tag then goes into the time consuming etching and polishing process before it comes to us as a finished KidKnits logo tag!
