    Project Upcycle brings upcycling workshops to the heartlands, schools, community events and spaces, encouraging residents to repurpose their used items into something new and useful. Participants can bring their old textiles, boxes and other used materials and walk away with a completely new item at the end of the workshop.

    Did you know the four most commonly discarded materials in Singapore are plastic, glass, paper and fabric. Find out more about these materials and their lasting impact on our earth here.
