Club Enerji recently launched the Waste Management module which educates the students about the hazards of waste dumping on the environment and its impact on the ecosystem. The module aims to provide a platform to students to share and expand their understanding, thereby, bringing about a chain-reaction that can significantly reduce generation of waste and increase efficient waste management in the country.
