Ibu Rumah Tangga Belajar Olah Limbah Plastik

A number of housewives are trained to utilise household waste by processing it into economic value items. One of them turns a used plastic bottle into an ornate plastic flower.

Skill training in the framework of community empowerment is fully supported by Alfaria Trijaya and took place at Alfamart Royal Apartment Makassar, Thursday (30/3/2017). Sahruni Dg. Lino acted as the facilitator.

The community empowerment refers to the enhancement of the ability of vulnerable and weak groups of community so that they have the power to reach productive sources that enable them to increase their income.

Sahruni leads dozens of housewives to make flowers and other decorations using used bottles as a base material. Participants respond positively to the training. They look enthusiastic in practicing the way of making plastic flowers by making various models of decoration.

Sahruni said, bottles are usually directly disposed as garbage, we try to use it by process it into useful decoration.

"So the bottles we used to throw away, were collected and then made into flower table ornaments, easy enough because only using simple materials," said Sahruni.

In the training, there are 60 used bottles waiting to be processed into plastic flowers of various models for table decoration.

This skill training is one contribution of Alfamart to empower the surrounding community, especially housewives, so they can make it as one of the activities that can increase income.

"Hopefully this training can make the housewives become more creative and can make it as a secondary business," said Moh. Rosyido, the Branch Manager of Alfamart.
