Giving Plastics A New Purpose
In October 2021, BUILDS embarked on a mission to prevent plastics from ending up in landfills. In doing so, BUILDS successfully collected 10kg of plastics from staff and the local community. All unrecyclable plastics donated were used to create coasters and Christmas ornaments in the spirit of the festive season.
With the support of 27 volunteers from Menara YTL and Wisma YTL, a total of 180 coasters and 56 ornaments were made to be sold during the recent RIUH event held at Sentul Depot. All proceeds from the sale will go towards Persatuan Seni Jahitan Kreatif Malaysia (PSJKM) who will be organising a programme to support marginalised communities which will help them in generating additional income.
