Cooler Lumpur Junior Highlight #4: ‘Tak Nak Straw’

Straws suck! As a single-use disposable item used on average for just 20 minutes, plastic straws are not recycled. They languish for hundreds of years in landfills or wreak havoc in rivers and oceans, polluting our water tables, food chains and our bodies.

Not cool, especially when plastic straws are not necessary! If you must suck, DIY or BYO earth-friendly alternatives such as stainless steel, bamboo, papaya stem or waxed paper straws are great alternatives. Join the ‘Tak Nak Straw’ workshop to learn about the journey of a plastic straw, make your own waxed paper straws, and watch how to make papaya stem ones!

Workshops suitable for people 7 years old and above. All materials are provided. Scissors and hot wax involved.

Here are the ‘Tak Nak Straw’ workshop sessions:

Saturday 19 August 2017: 1 PM – 2 PM and 4 PM – 5 PM

Sunday 20 August 2017: 3 PM – 4 PM and 5 PM – 6 PM

Where: Blue Zone @ Publika

Admission is FREE, on a first-come-first-served basis.
