19th January 2019, Taman Maluri, Cheras - As part of the River of Life Public Outreach Program (ROL POP), EcoKnights and ERE Consulting Group organised a clean up with nearby community at Taman Maluri. Close to 280 participants consisting of residents from Flat Taman Maluri, students from Cybernetics International College of Technology, and employees from Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur (DBKL) or the Kuala Lumpur City Hall took part in the clean up of the community space.
Apart from the cleaning and painting, participants had a fruitful day of enrichment as they learnt how to turn seemingly “useless waste” into useful household products through workshops conducted by EcoKnights. Said workshops include DIY Soap-making from used cooking oil, Homemade Eco-Enzyme Cleaning Agent, and Garbage to Garden Composting workshops. More than 8 litres of used cooking oil and 2kg of fruit peels had been successfully repurposed through the workshops today.
At the end of the day, participants learned how to cooperate and work together to clean up the area as well as the importance of doing so.
