In early June 2014, Kyut Kyut decided to extend their production to other interested groups. New producers were invited from MCP and Eden, an organization working with disabled children. Thanks to their experience, Kyut Kyut first phase producers trained new groups on the process of plastic bags’ infusion.
Following the first workshop, where they were taught the basic production steps, and a full-day training experience side by side with the most experience producers, the new groups began producing their first items.
They now meet in weekly trainings, in order to learn best practices on market sustainability cialis effect sperm and how to reproduce their design ideas
on the recycled material. During these meetings, the trainer encourages participation and discussion through the delivery of group presentations. Furthermore, thanks to their different experience, producers share their ideas and discuss innovative ways to improve production design and quality.
As to the logo, it will be soon available on Kyut Kyut products. Producers decided to use a simple black and white design, easily printable on recycled plastic, and visible when printed on colorful items. The letters are in Myanmar language because the primary aim is to enter the local market.
Overcoming the initial difficulties encountered in the production process, the groups were soon able to produce A4 bags, pencil cases
and other accessories. Among the recent additions is an innovative lunch box case design, realised with the help of young designer Nandar Win, supported by CESVI. She designed a versatile carrier, which the producers are still working on to improve the quality.
Kyut Kyut products are currently being promoted by CESVI as part of activities of awareness-raising on solid waste management (SWM), carried out in partnership with PCCD and local international schools, with a view to spread awareness on the potential of recycling, instead of disposing, plastic into beautiful and useful production designs.
Myanmar International School Yangon was the first one to
host a presentation
by CESVI to 6th to 10th grade students on SWM problems in Yangon. Both teachers and students were very interested in the products, which were then sold during their early Science Fair. Furthermore, Kyut Kyut organized for a class of students to visit the producers at their laboratory.
CESVI has launched the second phase of its awareness campaign in September 2014, and is handing out to cheap cialis online canadian pharmacy more than 2,000 students kits that include useful Kyut Kyut products. This has the effect of promoting Kyut Kyut in groups where awareness for high quality recycled material is low, and it gives the producers the chance to increase production and gain experience in manufacturing.
Producers are working hard to penetrate the market, introducing their products in different shops in popular markets around Yangon, and they also started selling their products in schools during awareness campaigns.
More news will be published soon on Kyut Kyut and the development of their inspiring work, so stay tuned for our next post!
