Ecoponics Upcycling Workshops

Upcycled Toilet Roll Stationery Holder

According to the National Environment Agency’s latest statistics, the recycling rate of paper and carboard in Singapore is at 39%. In stating the obvious that more can be done at various systemic levels to improve this rate, we at Ecoponics believe that marrying artistic creativity with an upcycling idea enables us to achieve the goal of helping improve environmental sustainability in Singapore, while increasing the value of a certain used and to-be-discarded product through various artistic modes and techniques.

Toilet roll tubes are, more often than not, never seen as items that can be recycled/upcycled. We hardly imagine another use for these things. Thankfully, there are paper recycling facilities that can help to repurpose the humble toilet roll tube, but imagine if we could rely less on these facilities, and think of cost-effective ways to use these items differently – and perhaps increase their value?

One such way is to upcycle the toilet roll tube as a stationary holder and we have specially designed a workshop for it! Save some bucks on that new stationery holder to replace your old one, or to give as a gift to your child, and create one yourself! Plus, you are doing something positive for environmental sustainability! Enquire to find out more!
