Siam University Working with Khlong Lat Mayom Community

Khlong Lat Mayom has been selected as another social living lab of Siam University. The community is well known for their floating market where community members sell their homegrown fruits, vegetable, confectionery and handmade products. Because of crowded tourists, the community faced with a large amount of waste especially paper and plastic. Siam University students and staff team, led by the Office of Student Affairs, was asked to make use of banana leaf and other local plant as food container to reduce waste pollution. We made a molding machine for the purpose. A Baitong (Banana leaves) Festival was then organized on April 10, 2021.
