Make Your Own - Eco Friendly Detergent
Updated: Jul 28
What can we do with our food waste? Have you upcycle your food waste before?
Let the food waste and plastic waste have a second life to upcycle into a useful multipurpose solution product: Eco Enzyme. Eco enzyme is a multipurpose liquid which is made out from fermentation of organic waste.
It is very easy to do it and requires zero to minimum amount of money to help our mother nature with upcycling food waste to be a natural:
- insect repellent
- plant fertilizer
- mopping liquid
- kitchen cleaner
- clothes detergent
- insect repellent
Converting organic waste into eco enzyme is important for reducing the amount of organic waste piling up in the landfill. All of these waste produces harmful gases to health and environment on earth. Warning: the decomposition of these waste produces methane which has the capacity to trap heat 30 times more effective than carbon dioxide.
It is highly advisable that you should only use raw food to produce eco enzyme. For more benefits of the eco-enzyme is as below:
- Reduce pollution
- Save money
- Multiple usage
- Anti-bacterial, anti-fungus and anti-virus
- Purify river and sea water
- Natural pesticides
This eco enzyme can be done easily at the comfort of our own home. Check out on how to make your own eco enzyme down below:
