Education is a big priority for those in South Korea and the girls there take up projects that are a bit out of the ordinary in their free time.

The original packs are combinations of used products and various supplies which girls can get their hands on. You can find examples of these on many South Korean photo sites. Some are made as gifts and others are created because they feel like it.
This is far from the first time South Korean culture has done something to make the world take notice in modern times. Backpacks, beads from the dead and even plastic surgery for kids are all recent trends that made headlines.
Part of this trend was probably due to a new wave of excitement over recycling. Those in the nation want to add more green jobs much like other parts of the world are doing. It is a nice change from some of the darker news in nearby areas. This is a welcome change from some of their previous projects that left air around industrial spots in bad condition.
