2. Biji-biji Initiative

Biji Biji Initiative is a social startup which uses discarded materials to reproduce new products. Their core values are sustainability, collaboration and innovation. Sustainability: Sometimes we are surprise that plastic, glass or wood we threw out are still in good working condition. Biji-biji shows people the actual value of the materials and how we can capture it. That is the reason why all Biji-biji?s product are made from recycled materials. Collaboration: Two minds are better than one, four hands are better than two. Biji-biji works close with a number of startups and social enterprises to enhance their social impact. All product designs are available for anybody to modify, improve and reproduce. Innovation: Through experimentation and collaboration, we turn an idea into imagination and turn imagination into reality. In doing business, there are 12 Key Sustainability indicators that we use to measure ourselves, as detailed in our Governance Framework. These indicators are a measure of how we are performing, beyond just our Profit & Loss statement.
