3 December 2020 – iCYCLE is back with our second webinar with Etiqa on the concept of Sustainable Lifestyle: DIY. The event was also participated by another 3 reputable speakers:
- Ms Sonia Chan, CLE Enrichment Centre
- Mr Saimiki Ibrahim, a finalist of Anugerah Kejiranan Hijau 2020
- Mr Cornelius Ngau, Monash University Australia
iCYCLE was represented by Ms Shafiqah, bringing on the topic of food waste and its upcycling idea; Eco Enzyme. For those who had missed out the session, no worries we got you covered! We will share all the materials needed, so you can make your own eco-enzyme.
- Vegetable scraps/Fruit peels (preferably citrus fruits)
- 3 spoon of brown sugar
- 150ml plain water
- Airtight container
- Mix all the ingredients in the container
- Ensure that the brown sugar is fully diluted
- Keep the airtight container in the room temperature for at least 2 weeks before used
*Open the container once in every 2 days in the first week to let the gas bubble out
To be answering some of the questions:
- The jar is not necessarily be glass, you may use any container you have and we would recommend you to reuse the old ‘raya’ cookie jar too!
- It is not vermicompost as the materials used and its compositions are different. Vermicompost would need the use of various species of worms.
- Dilute the eco-enzyme in the ratio of 1:20 to water and you may use it as spray fertilizer on the plant once every fortnight.
- Store the eco-enzyme at room temperature of at least by 2 weeks.
