“Eco-Schools Program proved that age is truly just a number when it comes to taking actions to make the world a better place” said Nojuel, a 16 year old student. Nojuel has been contributing to various environmental events and workshops in his school with the recent initiative being the Go Green Pot. This interesting project involves making biodegradable pots from discarded materials like rice husks, blended eggshells, old newspapers and rice glue for their school compound and fundraising purposes.

“My interest on the ESP began in 2012 when I attended a camp. I brought the idea back to my school and how time flies; it has been 5 years since we adopted the initiative,” said Shamsul Mutaza. Sekolah Sri Bestari is one of the top performing Eco-Schools in Malaysia and has been awarded with the Green Flag award for many of its green practices.

“I can see positive change in teachers, students and the local community’s attitude since we adopted the ESP. Even the school canteen has refrained from using Styrofoam and plastic bags now,” said Elizabeth. The school has transferred their knowledge gained through ESP into action by collecting rainwater for washing and watering purposes, upcycling plastic bottles into flower pots for hydroponic planting, engaging nearby villagers for river clean-up and the list continues.
