OK, we’ll admit to being sufficiently tree-hugger to be miffed when we see cardboard boxes tossed at the curb instead of being recycled at Commerce Court. But there’s a class coming up at the Essex County Environmental Center that does much to assuage our inner recycler.

On Saturday, January 16, Claire Baker, owner of the specialty store Copabananas (once in Montclair, now on Etsy) will teach a class on making notepads, billfolds, books and more, from cardboard packaging. She’ll cover simple bookbinding and sewing techniques and give instructions so you can make more projects on your own later. “Craft Something New from Something Old” is geared for children ages 8 years and up, and advance registration is required. For information, call 973-228-8776. The cost is $20 per person.
