What is the problem you found?

Lots of food wastage in the school food cafeteria.

What is your opportunity?

How might we reduce food wastage by turning excess food into a useable product?

Who is your audience?

School children and the wider community

What Is Your Solution?

World endangered uses excess and unwanted food to create healthy compost. Putting the food wastage into composts we create healthy soil that we sell in packages. The profits go to fund the creation of compost bins for more schools. We work with schools to help them create a culture where students take ownership of the environment and participate in creating healthy soil from otherwise unwanted food. Students turn credits that they earn into rights of naming or colour-tagging compost bins after their classes or houses.
