In a day to day life, Malaysians do generate a lot of waste. Based on the graph below, there is a positive correlation between increased GDP and the amount of waste generated.
Malaysia, on its way to achieve it’s goal to be a high income nation by 2020, is likely to have increased waste generation. Even today, a large middle class Malaysian society, throws a whopping 15,000 tonnes of food and organic waste a day which can feed 7.5 million people a day. In Kuala Lumpur alone, 3000 tonnes of food waste is generated daily.
Thus, we challenge Malaysians to generate zero waste! And, to compile their experience of the day!
