Happy Earth Day from Cambodia Knits!

Happy Earth Day from Cambodia Knits!

Today is Earth Day,  the world largest environmental movement, it is a day of political action and civic participation. People march, sign petitions, plant trees, clean up their towns and roads. In Cambodia, the rapid economic and population growth is leading to significant environmental pollution. Economic development activities have generated major environmental consequences, including air pollution, water pollution, noise pollution and solid wastes. To support this movement, there we are implementing new rules at the workshop in Phnom Penh: encouraging our staff to stop using single-use plastic.  We’re already not using plastic for packaging our products and for shipping. Now, at the office, we are not allowed to use plastic at all No more bags or styrofoam boxes for lunch, no more plastic bottles. We try to replace them with reusable things, like a Tupperware box for lunch or your own bag. All the best to our headquarters team for making these small but important efforts!  ...
Team Building Friday Fun

Team Building Friday Fun

Taking time out from regular work day busy-ness and reflecting on how we work together is important in any organization. We’re committing the last Friday of every month to spend a couple hours together to “build our team”. As we are three brands sharing a workspace and often collaborating and supporting each other, we’ve brought together all the wonderful women who work here from Cambodia Knits, Fair Weave and Khmer Creations, or an afternoon of fun team games. The main activity was a challenging one. In groups, staff had to recreate a lego (well actually duplo, but they’re just bigger lego) creation. The model was hidden from view however, and only one member of the team was allowed to observe it and try to remember the construction. Once all members felt confident they knew how to arrange their pieces, they worked together (cooperatively, collaboratively) to recreate the model. But once they had started they were not allowed to go back and look! How did the teams do? Have a look at the final pictures below. Looking forward to next month’s team...
