Disposing of recyclable waste from the workplace without proper waste management is not sustainable. “Shred to Share,” Paper Craft Training is organised to reuse materials that have been discarded. The Soe Family Artisan group aims to create a workplace that offers equal opportunities, with youths with special needs & hearing impairments being a part of the team & workshop.
Since the participants have good concentration and creativity, they were able to develop their ideas and create new items from recyclable waste. These paper toys can also be resold in the market as they are popular traditional souvenirs.
This is a new step by Prevent Plastics Myanmar & SCB Bank’s Go Green initiative to preserve and protect the environment, reduce waste production, and create a path toward responsible business best practices. Technical skills inputs for the training was delivered by La Min, a local SME.
