Cows chewing on plastic

ေအာက္မွာျမန္မာလိုပါတယ္ေနာ္

It’s hard to imagine anything more tragic than cows chewing their way through piles of plastic waste in the hope of finding some food.
In the end they do find some, of course, but their life would be a whole lot easier if the waste was separated from the start. Plastics, recyclables, cow food, dog food, other organic waste.

Sea of trash

Like so many other countries, Myanmar is drowning in a sea of trash.
Where we think we can add something is finding ways to help people sort the organic from the non-organic. The solutions are totally different — plastic needs to be collected, recycled, and in worst case taken to landfill.
But organic waste is different. It’s gold. And it ALL should return to the soil where it came from. That’s where bokashi comes in. At this time it’s the best solution there is, it’s a message really worth spreading. A solution really worth trying.

Mandalay!

The Bokashi Myanmar team is in Mandalay for a few days — meetings, farm visits, and Thingyan (New Year).
So what’s the first thing we do? Film the local rubbish collection… It’s our new hobby😉
But actually, the rubbish collection is working well, in its way. Next step is just to separate the inorganic from the organic before it all goes to landfill.
