Instead of recycling empty cereal boxes and mail ads, retired architect Hormoz Bastani, 76, has used them to craft children’s toys. They include the 3-foot-tall Trojan Horse pictured here, made entirely from cereal boxes and tape. Hormoz said he looks forward to giving the horse to his neighbors’ kids. His other homemade toys include paper airplanes and Polynesian boats. “I’ve traveled around the world and have seen the importance of preservation of the environment,” said Hormoz. “We can help a great deal just by doing our own part. I feel this is the least I can do.” For more, see "Creating Something Out of Nothing: Mr. Bastani’s Trojan Horse" by Pooja Salhotra
