Theme: Eco-cleanser DIY Workshop

As the pandemic progresses, many of us are purchasing different cleaning agents to keep our living environments virus free. However, cleaning agents often are often heavily packaged in plastic and contain harmful chemicals towards our environment, causing an accumulation of nitrates, chlorine and phosphates in our land and sea. Eco-enzymes, on the other hand, is an environmentally friendly alternative that can be used for a range of applications, acting as floor and furniture cleaner, insect repellent or even plant fertilizer. This cleaning agent is produced from a mixture of fresh kitchen waste, comprised of organic materials that is not only better for our health, but better for our environment. Other eco-friendly items such as baking soda and vinegar will be introduced in the workshop as well!

Theme: Organic Gardening Workshop

Foods we find in markets nowadays are often loaded with pesticides and synthetic fertilizers. Negative impacts include its damage on our health, as well as its disruption against our natural environment. As the pandemic stretches onwards, what better way to spend our time and ensure a healthy food source than organic gardening? Organic gardening is good for the environment as it requires no synthetic chemicals, and fully relies on the natural interactions between the plant and the natural environment. A greener and less waste alternative for gardening can put into action in this afternoon workshop!
