What is upcycling? This is when you take waste materials and turn them into something that's useful again. It's recycling on a whole new level because what you produce is of better quality and something that has better environmental value.

Tang Philippines launched Project Recyclass in an effort to encourage kids to become socially responsible and to have the initiative to do something to protect Mother Earth. For Project Recyclass, 30,000 kilos of empty foil packs need to be collected across the country. The awesome thing about this? These foil packs will be brought to a recycling plant and converted to 10,000 school chairs.

If you're interested in participating and want to know where the collection areas are, head over to Tang Galing Club.

REAX!
