MU XIA / Social innovation project


‘MUXIA’ is an organization that aims to reduce paper waste in schools and help poor areas with scarce educational resources, in the hope of contributing to sustainable social development and educational equality. One part of the recycled paper is used to make eye protection notebooks that are returned to urban schools and donated to poor areas, the other part is used to make blind box books. Each blind box contains three products, a best-selling book, a set of inner pages of the journal, and a thank you bookmark from the kids who have been helped. The hidden version of the blind box books is a hand-made Junk Journal.
