Time to Reimagine Plastic

Time to Reimagine Plastic

Social enterprise Hara Makers have been working towards reducing plastic pollution, and started the Reimagine Plastic Project as a way of working towards that. The initiative is also a community and income-generating project for the economically disadvantaged, by providing them with vocational skills in recycling and upcycling of plastic waste. They have successfully fused plastic bags and plastic packaging into fabric, and even melted harder plastics such as bread tags into flower pots, coasters and bowls. This #PlasticFreeJuly, we speak to the folks behind the initiative, Chee Lee Yoon and Hung Bee Ling, about their social and environmental project.
