The project will basically focus on the making of coconut straws and coconut fibre bag. On top of that, coconut leaf and fibre residues will be used to make compost, which will be sold to the local farmers and the coconut leaf straws (“batton coco”) will be freely given to the local residents to make coconut broom.

 
 10  Souillac  Mother Earth Conscious

The aim of this project is to protect the environment and also to decrease our waste production in an efficient manner. This will be achieved by designing several drainage nets or so called ‘trash traps’ that will be placed in specific locations, in order to prevent the discharge of plastic or other waste from flowing into our nature reserves and affecting our marine lives. Reduction of waste in our water, will firstly allow marine species to reproduce and thus resulting in an increase in the fishermen’s catch. Secondly, this will help to keep our natural reserves clean.
