Organo Et School organized an online Do It yourself (DIY) workshop, “Bio enzymes at home” for young children (age 7-13 year), on 30th Sept 2021.

It was an exciting interaction with these young enthusiastic bunch of children, who seem to know a lot about micro-organisms as friends of humans. How the micro-organisms help breakdown organic matter to yield useful solutions that can be put to good use. One such bi-product of fermentation of fruit and vegetable peels is Bio enzymes.

Bio enzymes are organic cleaning solutions that are produced by the fermentation of citrus fruits, jaggery and water. This solution comprises beneficial bacteria that produces enzymes to digest wastes, stains, soils, and malodors.

This session was lead and demonstrated by Ms. Shilpi Shukla, our favorite expert when it comes to Bio-Enzymes. She is a green warrior and a custodian of natural resources in her own right. As lots of interesting ideas and thoughts on Bio enzymes usage were shared, children watched Shilpi prepare the solution of water, jaggery and fruit peels of oranges and lemons. Children asked her why she specifically used only these peels. She said, as the end product, bio enzyme has good citrus fragrance, which she likes using in the house as a cleaning agent. Children were told to regularly open the cap of this bottle with this solution for 20 days. This solution has to undergo fermentation for 90 days, to convert into a usable Bio enzyme solution.

As Shilpi asked a question, children were very prompt to found out who was the first person to make Bio enzymes in the world? Bio-enzyme was first developed by Dr. Rosukon Poompanvong.

The session concluded with children promising to try and make their bio enzyme solutions at home.

Bio Enzyme cleaners encourage a zero-waste lifestyle as it is a sustainable way to clean home. For a step-by-step guide to making your own Bio enzymes please visit our website, in our Library section.
