Teck Ghee YEC Environmental Awareness Project - Soap Making Workshop

The YEGs attended a soap-making workshop, on 4th September 2010 from 10 to 11am at Teck Ghee CC organized by the Environmental Interest Group,Teck Ghee YEC.

The aim of the workshop is to provide a platform of outreach to spread the message about the importance of recycling and waste minimisation to students and teachers.

The objectives of the workshop are as follows:

a) To increase the participants’ understanding on the impact of recycling instead of disposing waste cooking oil on the environment.

b) Through a hands-on session, they will discover the process behind the formation of soap.
