Recycle Your Kid’s Food Waste
The tower garden is a place for kids to put their organic food waste and watch new plants grow from what otherwise would have been trash. Change your kids thinking about what is trash and what is useful. They will love eating fresh veggies that they helped grow. It comes with plants, worms and dirt included. It is easy to maintain, just water it everyday. We will install it and come explain how it works.

Compost Garden 

Teach your kids the joy of gardening

This is an interactive space where kids can work together to plant small plants and watch them grow into edible fruits and veggies. They will be able to take their apple cores and left over food waste and add it to the garden instead of throwing it away. We will come check on it regularly and do teaching sessions with the kids. This garden is large enough the whole school to participate in. Size will depend on available space.

Price: 30 000 000 VND

Reduce Your Waste

Make your school a zero waste school

The best way to teach children is through changing our own habits. Make the commitment to reduce your plastic and food waste. We will help you every step of the way. We will come and take an assessment of how much waste you are producing. We will then make a report for you outlining the biggest areas of waste and what can be done to reduce the waste. The report includes costs, strategies and vendors to get supplies. We can help you purchase product replacements, implementation and communications if you like. Once we have completed the process you will earn our zero waste medals and our recommendation*.  

Price for waste assessment: 10 000 000 VND
