From being hung around as promotional material, we renew the conventional perspective of the single, monotonous purpose of tarpaulin banners at Biji Biji. We consider the typically discarded banner material a fresh canvas of new possibilities - thus the idea sparked.
It was an absolute honour for Biji Biji to have met Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Jason Mraz when he serenaded his Malaysian fans with a visit during his “Good Vibes” Concert Tour back in May last year. During the time, we were also thrilled with the opportunity of meeting the locally renowned Malaysian artist, Aizat Amdan, too! What did they think of us?
She is no stranger to the people here at Biji Biji as Zoe Victoria is in fact, one of the co-founders of Biji-biji Initiative! Being part of the pioneering batch, Zoe is one of the first few who have been involved in the production of Biji Biji bags from the very start. “From the first prototype we tried to hot glue together!" How do the bags fare today since their hot-glueing days?
"Now, to present a token of appreciation (TOA) to our guest-of-honours!"
Quick question - What would the TOA be? What did you just think of? Yup, we’re all on the same page. Just to be clear - allow me to attempt to read your mind.
17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were launched by the United Nations in 2015 as a universal call to action to protect the planet and ensure everyone enjoys peace and prosperity by 2030. Biji Biji is motivated to play our part in the process of achieving these goals - how do we partake in 4 out of the 17 goals launched through what we do?
From sustainable event management to sustainable gifting, the Rainforest World Music Festival (RWMF) is doing the “impossible” through its collaboration with Biji Biji and Biji-biji Initiative by challenging the norms of unsustainable practices at large events. RWMF is one of the biggest international music festivals in the region. How do they realistically maintain green practices at such a huge festival?
On your way to work, or when you walk around your university campus, streets, on highway billboards and even in schools! - you would have surely noticed advertisements of all sorts placed all over. These adverts typically look similar in terms of the banner used. Ever stopped to wonder where they go after the period of advertising is over? Where does that huge piece of material get tossed to?
Inga is no ordinary mother and wife, given the incredible number of journeys she has embarked on. Inga has picked up a multitude of skills throughout her life including woodworking, sewing, crafts, cooking (splendidly at that!), aerial dancing and even used to perform in circus! With a life that versatile, how does her Biji Biji bags hold up through all the adventure?
To understand the price tags behind our products, it is very important to get the gist of what “ethical fashion” is all about. Have you ever stopped to wonder - How do these big, popular brands get their “in-season” products out on the line so quickly?
Amelia Goh leads no mundane life as her daily schedule is power-packed with stuff to do. She works as a lawyer as her day job and -get this- teaches Yoga at night! Super cool. Clearly, she is a flexible woman who is always ready to embark on a journey and is always seen with her trusty Biji Biji bags by her side. What makes her love them so much?
Throwing it back to a year ago, he is no unfamiliar face to Malaysians alike. Yup, you guessed it! It’s the ever-legendary Tun Dr. Mahathir bin Mohamad, Malaysia’s 4th and 7th Prime Minister, receiving two of our Biji Biji bags. What did he have to say about them?
