Izah Azahari

Zero Waste Brunei, in partnership with Baiduri Bank, conducted the ‘Zero to Hero’ workshop at Menglait Secondary School for 63 students yesterday, coinciding with the global movement and Zero Waste Brunei’s nationwide campaign of Plastic Free July.

The first of 10 workshops, the campaign is scheduled to travel across the Sultanate’s schools in for the rest of the year.

The workshop is also supported by the Department of Environment, Parks and Recreation (JASTRe), and under the strategic partnership of the Ministry of Education’s STEP Centre, to provide students across Brunei access to STEAM education through various programmes.

The workshop also focussed on educating and empowering the youth on waste elimination, a more sustainable lifestyle practice and becoming waste free, through a highly engaging and thought-inducing workshop.

“We are delighted to partner with Zero Waste Brunei for the ‘Zero to Hero’ workshop, which is in line with the environmental pillar in our corporate social responsibility framework.

“It’s also an opportunity for our staff to volunteer their time by helping out with the programme, while getting educated on low waste living and the benefits of it,” said Baiduri Bank Chief Executive Officer Ti Eng Hui.
