Erin O’Halloran was very privileged to attend the first Bright Ideas Innovation Cafe workshop, organised by the Swiss Embassy and Education Department. During this one day course she was taught various entrepreneural skills and teamwork. The idea that she submitted was titled ‘Plasticity’. ‘Plasticity’ is in actual fact her business.
The idea of ‘Plasticity’ is to take plastic shopping bags and change them into products ranging from pencil cases to makeup bags. This idea will employ as well as feed some of the community and hopefully make a difference in our small town.
The submission of this idea was awarded third place in the competition. As well as a prize she got to take home, she have learnt alot from this experience and have big plans for Plasticity.
To have ideas is one thing, to make something of them is another.
