WE ARE SO CUTE / Souvenirs


“WE ARE SO CUTE” is an environmentally-friendly project that combines charity painting and waste recycling. Souvenirs are made of paper produced from panda faeces and bamboo residues at the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding. People with autism, depression or other special needs are given opportunities to paint on postcards, diary books, and other related paper products.

The benefit of the project is twofold. Apart from helping protect the environment, the donation from customers by purchasing these souvenirs will be used to improve these people’s lives, help them integrate into the society, and achieve their self-worth.
