From Aluminium Pop Tabs To Prosthetic Limbs

From Aluminium Pop Tabs To Prosthetic Limbs

PETALING JAYA: November 14, 2013 – Students of IACT College unveiled a sculpture of the Petronas Twin Towers made entirely out of pop tabs and aluminium cans during the closing ceremony of The Pop Tab Project on Thursday.

Tab Thursday’ was aimed to educate students on how aluminium pop tabs can be recycled to create prosthetic limbs for those in need. The

sculpture was built as part of the campaign’s initial goal of collecting more than 10 000 pop tabs. However, The Pop Tab Project managed to exceed their goal and has collected more than 30 000 pop tabs.

Officiating of the Petronas Twin Tower Sculpture

The event was graced by Mr Vincent Wong Wai Sang, Political Secretary, Minister in Prime Minister’s Department, who officiated the closing of the campaign by placing the final pop tab onto the sculpture.

The Pop Tab Project is a student-led and student-run campaign that seeks to collect as many pop tabs as possible to be recycled into prosthetic limbs. The pop tabs will then be donated to the Prostheses Foundation, a non-governmental organisation in Thailand that collects these tabs and combines them with steel to produce affordable and eco-friendly parts for those in need.

“Creating prosthetic limbs from recycled pop tabs can reduce the cost by a whopping 90 per cent. Just by one simple effort, imagine how people like you and I can make prosthetic limbs a reality for amputees all around the world,” said Nicholas Lee, the Academic Director of IACT College.

Handing over of the mock Pop Tab to the Leo Club of SMK Assunta

This campaign was a joint effort between The Pop Tab Project and the Leo Club of SMK Assunta. During the event, a mock ‘pop tab’ representing 30 000 pop tabs was presented to the Leo Club, who will then hand the collected pop tabs over to the Prostheses Foundation in Thailand.

Over the course

of the campaign, the students promoted this cause on social media and organised an array of activities within campus to encourage students to take part in the donation of pop tabs. Garage sales were also held in the college to help raise funds.

In hopes of raising awareness, a contest for the highest donation of pop tabs was held among students in which participants had a chance to win a pair of tickets to the ‘Wicked Festival 2013,’ a rave festival in Sepang featuring world-renowned DJs such as DJ Axwell and Zedd. The contest was open to students of IACT College as well as colleges around Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya.

The Pop Tab Project also collaborated with various food outlets throughout the entire campaign. From myBurgerlab in Petaling Jaya, to a restaurant from the Manjung District in Perak named ‘Rong Cheng; these food avenues contributed to the campaign by donating their pop tabs and aluminium cans.

“To think that something as simple as pop tabs can make someone’s life more meaningful is truly humbling. We are glad that we could help the campaign reach its goals,” said Mr Ding Ho Hock, founder of ‘Rong Cheng’ Restaurant.

The Prostheses Foundation in Thailand has garnered interest regionally, but has yet to gain much recognition from Malaysians. The Pop Tab Project hopes that fellow young Malaysians would recognise a need to help others, should it just be through donating pop tabs, however small or large the numbers may be.

Reusing pop tabs in this regard not only benefits the environment; it requires minimal effort on our part to make a change in the lives of the less fortunate amputees around the world.
