Introducing the Starbucks Upcycled Flavorlock™ Pouch project, a collaboration between Starbucks Malaysia and YWCA KL, now available in all stores in Malaysia.
These whole bean bags which was once used to hold our package coffee has been upcycled with due diligence and care by the young girls of VTOC, women sewers and volunteers of YWCA, from cleaning to matching the cloths that make the linings of the bags. No one bag is identical!
Our aim is to both create a positive impact on our planet as well as the help the B40 community to improve their livelihoods. Besides reducing landfill waste, this program will not only help the students earn an income with the skills that they are learning, but ultimately, they will also learn about entrepreneurship so that they may one day start their own business. It also enables women sewers to earn income to help support their families.
