The Second Box 拾易紙長

The Second Box aims to increase elderly scavengers’ income and social engagement in Hong Kong. The team collects cardboard boxes and aluminum cans from scavengers at a higher-than-market price, and redesign the carton boxes into smaller boxes and display boards as well as upcycle the aluminum cans into commercial catalog and invitation cards. The redesigned products will be sold to companies in various industries ranging from Chinese medicine wholesale companies to event-planning companies. Through the interaction with scavengers, the difficulties they faced will be identified and these experiences will then communicate to the general public in order to reduce discrimination against scavengers.

拾易紙長是一個針對本港拾荒長者而設的項目,旨在提昇拾荒收入及社會認同。項目以高於市價的價錢收集由拾荒者艱辛收集的廢棄紙箱及鋁罐,然後將這些資源翻新設計成細紙箱、展板、鋁製目錄或卡片等產品。此等產品將銷售至不同行業,如中藥房或活動策劃公司等。透過與拾荒者的互動,希望能進一步了解他們的困難,引起大眾對拾荒者的關注和支持,減低大眾對他們的歧視。
