Female Soldier Uses Pull Tabs From Soda Cans to Make Recycled Gowns
A female soldier from the town of Mataasnakahoy in Batangas goes viral for making gowns out of pull tabs from soda cans.
To honor her late father, a female soldier from Mataasnakahoy, Batangas is making gowns out of soda can pull tabs. Richell Malibiran, the uploader, is promoting a personal project of producing recycled gowns in memory of her late father, Feliciano Malibiran.
“Naggawa po ako ng ganyan dahil po sa tatay ko. Bata pa po ako nagko-collect na po siya ng ganyan, lumaki po ako na ganun ginagawa niya. Kahit ‘yung mga patapon na bagay binibigyan namin ng buhay,” she said.
Tatay Feliciano was gathering soda can pull tabs in order to trade them in for a wheelchair. Malibiran kept his memory alive through these eco-friendly gowns after he died on March 16, 2013.
“His memory po andyan nakikita ko at na-share ko sa lahat ‘yung turo niya na lahat ng bagay na patapon na, mabibigyan mo ng buhay kung lalagyan mo ng puso at dedikasyon,” Richell claimed.
Malibiran’s environmental activism began with her father’s legacy. She learner how to cut, sew, and embroider on her own. She has designed three eco-friendly gowns in the last ten years.
“I always idolize him kasi po kahit mahirap kami noon, ginapang po niya pag-aaral namin kahit karpintero lang siya. We’re nine siblings po lahat po kami professional na,” she added.
The female soldier hopes to break the Guinness World Record, and she acknowledges their Mayor Janet Ilagan and Vice Mayor Jay Ilagan for their support.
