Established in 2016 as a Facebook Group and registered in 2018 as a non-profit organisation, Zero Waste Malaysia (“ZWM”) is a community group based in Malaysia advocating for sustainable development and aiming to increase the local community’s awareness in sustainable living.
Living zero waste is a journey of replacing disposables with reusables, and the 5Rs (Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Rot) is in the forefront of everything we do. We strive to adopt the zero waste lifestyle whilst creating an education and resource platform for the community. We encourage everyone to have a shift in mindset and practice the good, environmentally-responsible habits that will navigate us through our current disposable culture.
In hopes of providing Malaysians with a platform to find local alternatives to aid in their zero waste lifestyle, ZWM has developed a map with more than 600 locations as well as a handbook on zero waste living. Apart from this, ZWM has also started Zero Waste Speaker Team and Zero Waste Pledge Certification this year to raise awareness through sharing zero waste lifestyle to target audience and to evaluate businesses / organisations that pledge on respective low waste effort in their operation model respectively.
