Ecoponics Upcycling Workshops are a series of eco-friendly enrichment programmes that provide students with the exposure and knowledge on what is upcycling, the differences of upcycling and recycling and how upcycling can benefit the environment.
This programme aims to expose students to essential environmental education and to groom students to be good role models and environmental stewards. With the knowledge that they have learnt during the workshop, students will be inspired to play their part in upcycling and saving the environment.
What is unique about this programme? Students will have a first-hand experience, hands-on session of making their own crafts using recycled materials thus giving the material a new life instead of throwing it away.

Upcycling is a similar concept to recycling. Instead of discarding materials or objects, upcycling is a method of using creative ways to re-use discarded objects or material in such a way as to create a product of higher quality or value than the original.
The workshops can range from 1-2 hours, depending on the level of difficulty of making the product. Should you have a specific duration in mind, do let us know and we will be able to recommend the workshops accordingly!
Our workshops are suitable for primary & secondary school students in Singapore. These workshops are suitable for students who would want to learn about upcycling, its benefits and also how to upcycle an unwanted item/material into something of use or of a higher quality.
To support the zero-waste movement, we would like to encourage participants to bring their own recycled item (plastic bottles, bottle caps) etc. We will be able to provide supplementary items such as glue, rubber bands etc. The lesson will also be conducted by our certified instructors and trainers.
