A young woman who turns discarded plastic bottles into sustainable broomsticks for cleaning has been captured on camera during her usual working hours.
The talented woman whose identity is yet to be known was spotted busily cutting some of the plastic bottles with scissors to convert them into stiff fibres.
In some of the impressive photos online, the stiff fibres have been attached to wooden handles, which is commonly used in combination with a dustpan.
The photos also show a faceless man using a machine to polish the wooden frame used to hold the plastic fibres.
The broomstick which is suitable for sweeping the floors of homes and offices is soft enough to move light dust and stiff enough to achieve a firm sweeping action.
The photos have garnered comments praising the team for their creativity.
