Environmental Protection

A year ago, I had multiple stacks of old newspapers being stored in my house and ready to be sold. When I tried to sell the stacks, there were difficulties in locating an authority or scrap collectors that would buy the old newspapers around my residential area. This event brought me into realization that the number of scrap collectors today are significantly low. Consequently, this would result in improper disposal of the papers such as burning that would eventually lead to the emission of Greenhouse Gas (GHG).I figured the potential solution to this problem is by upcycling the paper wastes into seedballs (or also known as earth balls), in which the seed is added inside the small ball that is made from paper waste and thrown to the suitable area. Furthermore, seedballs could effectively restore the natural flora that had been destroyed when planted in rural or urban areas in an inexpensive way.

Overview of Issue / Background

A year ago, I had multiple stacks of old newspapers being stored in my house and ready to be sold. When I tried to sell the stacks, there were difficulties in locating an authority or scrap collectors that would buy the old newspapers around my residential area. This event brought me into realization that the number of scrap collectors today are significantly low. Consequently, this would result in improper disposal of the papers such as burning that would eventually lead to the emission of Greenhouse Gas (GHG).

I figured the potential solution to this problem is by upcycling the paper wastes into seedballs (or also known as earth balls), in which the seed is added inside the small ball that is made from paper waste and thrown to the suitable area. Furthermore, seedballs could effectively restore the natural flora that had been destroyed when planted in rural or urban areas in an inexpensive way.

Project Details (Activities and Tasks)

  • Community Engagement: Seedball will involve the community of Seksyen 24, particularly those within the B40 household income classification.
  • Site Survey: A site survey must be conducted before the commencement of the program to ensure that the place selected is suitable for the scattering of the seedballs. 

Collaboration: The program will be in collaboration with Briged Sukarelawan UiTM, where they would assist in locating the most appropriate venue to implement the program and advertise to the community.
