Zero Waste Ecoenzyme Project

Environmental Protection

Kampung Sungai Buaya, Nibong Tebal, Pulau Pinang is a village of around 300 population that is known for its large farming area, palm oil plantation, touristic spot, which is the Taman Negeri Bukit Panchor, and also their local food business.  We have been informed by the village head of Kampung Sungai Buaya that the village produces a lot of waste including organic waste and plastic bottles/container waste daily, but the villagers are not well informed about recycling their wastes into something useful. Instead, 90% of the wastes in the village are combined in the provided garbage bins and picked up by the district’s garbage collector and sent to the landfill without going through the recycling process.  Our project is about recycling and converting organic waste into a multi-purpose solution known as eco-enzyme or garbage enzyme, for cleaning, fertilizers insecticides, wastewater treatment, etc. Eco-enzyme has been reported by many research papers from countries such as India and Thailand that it could assist in reducing the amount of waste sent to landfills and also plastic bottle/container waste substantially.  The village head of Kampung Sungai Buaya agreed that our project could substantially help their village’s waste management. Thus, we would like to start our first journey to overcome their issues by organizing our outreach programme with the villagers of Kampung Sungai Buaya, Nibong Tebal and educating them about using their wastes to  create their eco-enzyme solution.

Overview of Issue / Background

Kampung Sungai Buaya, Nibong Tebal, Pulau Pinang is a village of around 300 population that is known for its large farming area, palm oil plantation, touristic spot, which is the Taman Negeri Bukit Panchor, and also their local food business. 

 

We have been informed by the village head of Kampung Sungai Buaya that the village produces a lot of waste including organic waste and plastic bottles/container waste daily, but the villagers are not well informed about recycling their wastes into something useful. Instead, 90% of the wastes in the village are combined in the provided garbage bins and picked up by the district’s garbage collector and sent to the landfill without going through the recycling process. 

 

Our project is about recycling and converting organic waste into a multi-purpose solution known as eco-enzyme or garbage enzyme, for cleaning, fertilizers insecticides, wastewater treatment, etc. Eco-enzyme has been reported by many research papers from countries such as India and Thailand that it could assist in reducing the amount of waste sent to landfills and also plastic bottle/container waste substantially. 

 

The village head of Kampung Sungai Buaya agreed that our project could substantially help their village’s waste management. Thus, we would like to start our first journey to overcome their issues by organizing our outreach programme with the villagers of Kampung Sungai Buaya, Nibong Tebal and educating them about using their wastes to  create their eco-enzyme solution.

 

Project Objectives (Vision & Mission)

  • To minimize the organic waste generated by each household by making ecoenzyme.
  • To educate people in Kampung Sungai Buaya, NIbong Tebal about importance of reducing waste and landfills.
  • To implement the use of eco-enzyme in every household.

 

Project Details (Activities and Tasks)

The Zero Waste Ecopotion Project activities include: 

  1. Community Engagement: Engaging with the community through fun educational and learning activities of creating eco-enzymes, and tending to their needs.
  2. Workshop: Inviting the community to learn about eco-enzyme and teaching them how to convert their waste into a multi-purpose solution for cleaning, fertilizers, insecticides, and many more.
  3. Mass waste collection activity: Bringing all community to collect the organic wastes and plastic bottles/containers in their area to be used in our eco-enzyme workshop.

Expected Project Result & Outcomes

  1. The villagers will be more aware of the environmental issues around them and the importance of reducing waste in landfills.
  2. The villagers will gain knowledge of waste-reducing strategies by making eco-enzyme.
  3. The villagers will be able to use the eco-enzyme as an alternative to commercial products.
