Aquatic Science Student Association: Towards Zero Waste – Feel and Heal

“Towards Zero Waste – Feel and Heal” project is designed to create awareness on the food scraps created from consumers daily eating habit. Instead of labelling it as waste, it can be repurposed into compost.

Composting food scraps systematically for fertilizing plants for personal consumption and commercial purpose is a possible lifestyle for every world citizen. However, the underserved rural communities are often deprived from this cutting-edge know-how. This project believes in quality education for all. For that reason, its mission is to create awareness, share knowledge and transfer skills in food composting and aquaponic to those who have the heart to protect the environment. TOGETHER we care for one mother earth!

Top 3 learnings:

  1. Giving back to mother nature for the benefits that she has given us
  2. Everything deserves a second chance and life especially after they have exceeded their original function or life. There might be another way that it can contribute back to society
  3. Patience and perseverance will bring the best out for one’s work and personal characters

What it means to win

Bringing education to the community and bringing community to educational institutions to meet the pressing needs of our local and global community is foundational to transformative education. Partnerships in healing and protecting our environment is the common goal we thrive for together! Support Zero Waste!
