Every year many companies has made promotional materials which will be trashed at the end of the year. It was a waste of manpower, time and money. With all these materials, we decided to make use of it. Pracharath Rak Samakkee Social Enterprises worked with Suphanburi Community, which is well known for their leather sewing skills. Since the work was less and less, this project helped providing them steady income for their families.
We used old promotional vinyl to make hipster bag. In all events we participated, the collection was very popular, especially with the young crowd and office workers since the collection was cool, unique, different, and affordable. Since September 2018, we sold more than 500,000 Baht of products and reuse more than 1,200 vinyl. It also raised awareness on recycling and environment as well.
