Our founder, Mel, is a TedX speaker and personally offers free assembly talks to all local government schools in Singapore. We can customise our talks to suit your school population's current knowledge of zero-waste. Through our school talks, we promote the idea that every little action counts and that everyone can make a difference!

2. Customised coaching sessions
