Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng, who attended the campaign, said he first heard of the use of enzyme during the state assembly when Teh talked about recycling and promoting a green environment in thestate. "I didn't really know what it was but I'm very interested with it. Now that I have a better idea of it and I hope more people will become aware of its benefit and start making it on their own at home," he said.

Eco-enzyme is made from the fermentation for three weeks of leftover vegetables and fruit wastes. One has to mix one part of brown sugar with 10 parts of water, depending on the size of container used. It can be added into shampoo, dish wash, laundry detergent as well as mixed with water for gardening and farming.
Eco-enzyme advocate Dr Joean Oon said: "The enzyme will neutralise the chemicals in our drainage systems and save the environment. "We can reduce kitchen waste and that means less waste will be sent to the landfill." Lim later poured bottles of eco-enzyme into the drains at the market and distributed some bottles to hawkers there.
Those who attended the event were each presented with a bottle, a free container and brown sugar. They were also taught how to create their own eco-enzyme at home.
