Cooking for Cleaning (C4C)
Did you know that one of the major polluters of Malaysian rivers is domestic and commercial used cooking oil discarded irresponsibly from domestic homes and eateries?
The C4C program is dedicated to enhancing community’s knowledge and action towards responsible disposal of used cooking oil.
C4C is supported by the Shell Sustainable Development Grant and is also a joint effort with the River of Life (ROL) as well as Klang Learning Education and Action for River (KLEAR).
Community Workshops are approaches we use to provide understanding and knowledge on the negative impact of irresponsible disposal of used cooking oil down sinks and drainage systems. The workshops also provide a step-by-step tutorial on how to repurpose used cooking oil.
The long term goal of C4C is to reduce the volume of used cooking oil from entering the ecosystem. The short-term goal is to provide knowledge and awareness on potential entrepreneurial potential of repurposed used cooking oil for new innovative products.
Communities that are eligible for C4C programs:
- Above 18 year old from B40 communities that reside in the Kerayong River Basin (Cheras, Maluri, South Salak, Iwon River, Old Klang, Pudu, Queen Sri Town and Lake City Park),
- Corporate Employees who are keen to learn this as part of their learning development or volunteerism program.
