“When you have more than you need, build a longer table not a higher fence”
 
In the spirit of sustainability and reducing waste to landfill, staff at PATA Headquarters participated in an online flea market to buy, sell, and trade unwanted items. The staff shared photographs of all the items on Google Drive; after that, a bidding war began. All proceeds were donated to charity, and on the last day of the flea market, everyone at the office brought their stuff to sell or swap. Many items got a second life with their new owners, as after all, one (wo)man’s trash is another (wo)man’s treasure! Items that did not sell were donated to the Baan Nokkamin Foundation, an organization chosen by PATA staff
   
 
Baan Nokkamin Foundation is a Christian organisation that aids orphans, underprivileged children, the elderly and addicts by bringing a positive change into their lives. The Foundation helps to strengthen the community so that they can have a better future.
 
PATA has previously donated to Klong Toey slum via Second Chance Bangkok. For more information about creating an online flea market for your own office, contact ssr@pata.org.
