The Carpenter’s House
A total of 220 hours (Team members x service hours per member)
Term of Service
March 22, 2016~May 27, 2016
Number of service recipients
About 100 persons
Motive of Service
We generate a variety of rubbish in our daily life, including desks and tables, cabinets and wooden furniture, etc. Given the defective recycling system in the past, the disposition of rubbish primarily adopted incineration or landfill. 99.5% of the wood making the furniture was imported from rainforests, and the import volume amounted to 6 million cubic meters per year, affording to fill up a Xueshan Tunnel in whole. The primary exporting countries of wood included Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and Canada. 這些地區的書中多數熱帶雨林及針葉林(??). Besides, in consideration of the trading transportation, Taiwan also helps increase the global CO2 emissions invisibly.
Upon investigation, we finally targeted at the Carpenter’s House as our cooperating counterpart. The counterpart upholds the same environmental protection philosophy claimed by us and also acts kindly and considerately, as it offers the physically and mental disabled with job opportunities and encourages them to overcome their defects, congenital or acquired, as what is claimed based on its core value “helping persons and things not eliminated recover the value they deserve”.
All of our team members are touched by the philosophy upheld by the Carpenter’s House. Therefore, we reach the agreement on cooperation with it through active negotiation. We hope to teach the public knowledge to help realize the importance of environmental protection in an emotional way and also propagate the House’s love and care through marketing of second-hand wooden handicrafts.
