Mentoring the next generation of recycled entrepeneurs

It's taken a semester or two, but finally my former student is ready to create her own recycled business. Anh Khan has been in the US for almost ten years. She and her family reside in New Orleans East which used to be one of the largest Vietnamese communities in the States,pre Katrina. Anh and her sister Anh Dai
are recreating a popular art from their birth country by using discarded materials from their new country. Predominantly my office to be specific about it.They have created so many bowls and vessels that there wasnt enough time to photograph.
They have started a paypal account and are getting ready to open up an etsy shop.Watch out world because they have carted away about a ton of paper already and are clamoring for more!
