The Swap Project & Refill.co

The Swap Project started in 2018. We are passionate about sustainability in a fashionable way.

Textile is the world’s 2nd largest pollution in the world after oil. According to the Council for Textile Recycling, almost 30kg of clothing and other textiles are thrown away daily, and it is estimated that textile waste alone occupies nearly 5% of all landfill space. And in Malaysia 2,000 tons of textile waste was produced daily.

So instead of contributing to the landfill waste, we come up with a sustainable way to give these beautiful clothes a longer life span. At The Swap Project you get to drop off your preloved clothes that are nice and in great condition (clean, not damage, no holes, no stain, functioning zipper, no undergarment, no uniforms or corporate t-shirts, no runners t or t-shirts), and we will sort them out. Now here’s the best part, you get to pick any of the clothing that is available and it will be yours to own! T&Cs apply. We believe sustainability should be part of our lives, hence, in 2023 we extended our passion in refillables, at our eco store, you can refill your household & personal care products, and pet treats! Our products are eco-friendly and budget friendly, we do not use SLS/ SLE/ Paraben/ Phosphate/ Formaldehyde in our products, no harmful chemicals. A good clean shouldn’t harm our mother Earth and your wallet! Love what we do, contact us for collaborations! We host corporate events, talks and hands-on workshops.

The Sea Monkey Project

Here at The Sea Monkey Project, we create solutions for ocean-bound plastic and ocean plastic education.

We believe in creating positive social and environmental impact. As consumers, we have a responsibility to rethink our material choices, and cease using virgin plastics in new products. We upcycle single-use plastics into long-lasting ethical products; upcycling plastic “waste” means turning trash into treasure. We emphasize the importance of education because we recognize the global scale of plastic pollution. We cannot recycle our way out of the plastic crisis; we need to rethink and redesign the systems which led us here.

We are raising funds to grow and create further impact through our Sea Monkey Project, supporting people whose mission is creating ocean plastic solutions and education. Education is a powerful catalyst for change. Everyone can make a difference.

One Less Plastic

To improve the health and well-being of children and their families.

Founded in March 2022 by 2 passionate ladies who wanted a less plastic earth for their next generation. Especially after pandemic, more single-use items are created for hygiene purposes but there are more items like household and personal care bottles which can be reused. Besides offering detergent refill service, the ladies took one step further to partner with F&B and cafes to reuse their drinking bottles which usually ended at landfill by refilling liquid products.

 NATURELOOP

We believe in the power of sustainability

At Natureloop, we believe in the power of sustainability and the positive impact we can make on the environment. Our journey begins with collecting plastic waste from various sources, including friends, family, local communities, businesses, and schools. Dedicated to quality and responsibility, we meticulously clean and sort each piece of plastic by type and color. This critical step ensures that the materials are safe for recycling and sets the foundation for creating products that can be recycled again and again. While the sorting process may be time-intensive, we consider it a small investment in a cleaner, greener future.
