23 Mar: Kick start - Saving Mother Earth through Garbage Enzyme

Event Date: 23 March 2009

We started this semester with our main challenge 'Saving Mother Earth Through Garbage Enzyme'. If we utilise our vegetable waste and fruit peels to produce garbage enzyme, we can stop kitchen waste from releasing methane (a greenhouse gas) and at the same time generate enough ozone gas to ease global warming.

Pn Yip CY, our Penolong Kanan KOKO and Miss Loo our main challenge co-ordinator, demonstrated to the students during our Monday assemblies ie. at 7.30am and 1.30pm how garbage like fruit peels can be used to 'clean' Mother Earth!

Production of garbage enzyme will generate ozone gas O3, which reduces CO2 in the atmosphere and heavy metal in clouds that trap heat, thereby reducing the greenhouse effect and global warming.

Benefits and uses (extracted from www.justlifeshop.com/changeclimate) are:

*Save Money: turns kitchen waste to DIY natural household cleaners.
*Multiple Uses: natural household cleaner, air purifier, deodoriser, insecticide, detergent, body care, car care, organic fertiliser, etc.
*Reduce Pollution: Disposed garbage releases methane gas that can trap heat 21x more than CO2.
*Purify Air, Increase Oxygen Level: removes odour, clears toxic air due to smoking, car exhaust, chemical residues of household products, etc..
*Natural Pesticides: reduces mosquitoes, flies, rats, cockcroaches, etc.
*Anti-bacterial and Anti-virus: natural antiseptic for homes.
*Prevents Drainpipe Blockage: releases residues accumulated in pipes, basins, toilet bowls.

What Do We Need .... Only
Ÿ Air tight plastic container (Used oil/water containers)
Ÿ Water
Ÿ Fruit and vegetable waste (any fruit peels esp lemon peels which can produce garbage enzyme with a nice odour)
Ÿ Brown sugar

Step1 : 10 parts of water (Fill up 60% of container)
Step2 : 1 Part sugar (=10% water content)
Step3 : 3 Parts kitchen waste (Fill up 80% of container)
Steps 4: Close tight - Place at cool, dry and well ventilated area. Avoid direct sunlight.Keep 3 months (Open daily to release gases during first month)

Ratio: 1 part of brown sugar : 3 parts of fruit peels : 10parts of water
for example 1kg of brown sugar : 3kg fruit peels : 10litres of water

Take note:
Do not use glass or metal containers that cannot expand.
