Windmill woven bags, Thailand

Two years ago, we started a recycling project with Tetra Pak, where the Tetra Pak packages would be turned into bags. Unfortunately, the project was not successful due to lack of staff.

Now, we are going to send all the Tetra Pak packages stored in our shop to Bangkok to the project called Green Roof project.

They melt down the packages and make roof tiles of it. The tiles are used for poor people’s homes.
