Package Pals is a circular packaging initiative for businesses & the Earth.
Founded on the principles of Reduce and Reuse, we seek to give single-use packaging new life by collecting & distributing 2nd-hand packaging to local businesses for reuse.
Fun fact! Package Pals was founded by two youths who met online via a Telegram community, during the circuit breaker in May 2020.
Since then, we have grown into a team comprised of 20 volunteers who dedicate their time and effort into our cause.
We firmly believe in the priorities set by the waste hierarchy.
By collecting & distributing 2nd-hand packaging to businesses, we encourage the reuse of typically single-use packaging. This also helps reduce the usage of brand-new packaging.
