The aim of this eco-activity lifestyle changes are to reduce 📉 and recycle ♻️ of household waste and at the same time we can divert the waste from the landfills. In overall is to improve awareness on environmental issues at home 🏡
As we know, Malaysia still struggling with the issues of MSW in encounters of reducing and recycling of recyclable items. I believe, with these eco-activity we can achieve the target as well as save the earth 🌎
How to perform of this eco-activity lifestyle
Waste reduction and recycle activities at home
This eco-activity lifestyle changes is only involved with my family members 👨👩👦
First of all, for waste reduction, the waste are separated into three categories, which is Organic 🥦🍤, Paper 📚📦 and Plastic 🗞🩰
The period of this project is one month but the waste will be weighed every two days for each category and the data will be recorded in google excel for analyses part
For recycling activity ♻️ the items we can recycle such as cans, box, and plastic bottles are made during our leisure time become something unique and useful to us ✨
Data analysis and discussion
Waste reduction at home
The household waste has been weighed interval two days for one month periods.
According to data, TOTAL OF HOUSEHOLD WASTE is 39.17kg. With the highest category is glass 🍾 followed by food waste 🥦🍤 which both are 12.18kg and 11.55kg. The lowest category is metals ⛓ only 0.07kg
We divided the waste category for two parts, which are waste without business waste and with business waste. Business waste consists of glass, plastics and papers.
Major household waste are decreased. Based on the graph, the darker is the weighed of waste with business waste while the bright color is the weighed of waste without the business waste.
Recyclable items : 15.85kg
Household waste : 39.17kg
(15.85/39.17) x 100 = 40.5%
Means, 40.5% of waste diverted from the landfill each month.
According to Naimah (2018), 38% above is the best amount per month for household waste not ended up at landfill.
We recycled the items such as cans and plastic bottles become the flower pots as my sister is love gardening at the balcony.
