Hand Sanitiser Holder

Under the Lively Places Challenge 2020, a team of students from Singapore Polytechnic engaged Punggol residents in a virtual hand sanitiser holder-making workshop to promote the importance of personal hygiene and to show how everyday items can be recycled into eco-friendly DIY crafts, with the completed hand sanitiser holders gifted to the seniors in a Senior Activity Centre.

Find out how you can transform recycled fabrics into a unique hand sanitiser holder to remind ourselves to keep our hands germ-free on the go!
