Progresif published its quarterly magazine’s ninth issue yesterday, featuring themes of environmental conservation and the local maker movement in Brunei.
For this issue, Progresif collaborated with feature writers to develop articles that highlight the need for more recycling initiatives and to support sustainability by choosing to shop at local outlets.
For stories on the environment, the magazine explores the effects of plastic and to find out the avenues for proper disposal of electronic waste in Brunei.
