Green Box Aberdeen was born out of a request from a community group in Aberdeen. They were asking for materials for crafts. While i was at Mens Shed in Westhill. I was looking at a large, amount of donations they have. I got thinking on what do business, in fact anyone. Do with their waste and what does it contain. Looks like more investigation.

It was then time to speak to a few businesses around the Holburn Street area. After a few conversations, there were materials getting thrown out. That was no use to them. But, there was a value in almost anything to be used in craft or art.

Green Box Aberdeen was born.
