How do you go about changing the habits of a nation? This session presents Zero Waste Malaysia’s journey to doing just that. With the ongoing issue of plastic pollution and landfill overloading in Malaysia, a community of over 40,000 members inspired the creation of a new resource: a MY Zero Waste Life handbook. The beginner-friendly handbook offers a simple guide to living a sustainable lifestyle, with simple-to-read visuals and a strong storytelling approach. In this session, the Zero Waste Malaysia team will share their journey towards creating this resource, who it is made for, and how it has been used so far – wrapping up with their hopes for Malaysia becoming a greener nation.
Inspired by Lauren Singer. Sue Yee started her zero waste journey in 2016 when she was working in Beijing, China. She believes education, knowledge sharing and community living help towards a sustainable future.
