This programme has definitely a huge impact Before this, we don’t have much knowledge about food waste that can actually be turned into compost Usually, we only collect dry leaves and just leave them as they are to become compost But now, we know that the dry leaves and food waste can be mixed together to become compost So now the students, teachers, and parents can get the exposure and learn this process What do you hope for from this composting programme? We hope that we could transform the school into a zero waste school So now, not only we are able to practice recycling for solid waste such as plastic, bottle or can, but we can also gain benefit from processing food waste in the kitchen into compost – Interview session with a volunteer – How do you feel after joining this programme?
