May pera sa basura: Cynthia Villar taps Cavite seamstresses to make bags from tarpaulins
Senator Cynthia Villar has tapped the help of a group of women in Dasmariñas, Cavite to make bags out of the tarpaulins used during her campaign for the midterm elections.
Villar, chair of the Committee on Environment and Natural Resources, said the recycling project benefits a small tailoring business employing seamstresses.
“We are very glad that we have now a way for the proper disposal of these used tarpaulins. Through this initiative, we were not only able to recycle used tarpaulins into something useful, we were also able to help women earn additional income for their families, ” he said.
The 2 x 3 feet tarpaulins collected by Villar’s staff are delivered to the sewing shop to be made into bags for P16 a piece.
The finished product has a dimension of 12 x 18 x 4 inches. It will be distributed for free by the senator’s camp.
