How can you not be so proud of these twin brothers who just graduated and are not just so passionate about serving people but also contributing to how to protect our planet more fun and cool way? Having BEEBAG as a University assignment to now as like a shopping app that encourages us to bring our affordable Beebag. Not just a simple reusable bag but also rewarding as you enjoy some points or prizes while using the Beebag with their partnered stores or even bringing it everywhere to remind you that you’re making a contribution to protecting our planet. Now, that’s a very innovative and fun way of creating awareness of recycling/reusing and attracting people to participate.
