The 16th Green mate will inherit the activities launched in the first half of the year and perform both individual and team mission under the theme ‘zero waste with LocknLock’ to spread the eco-friendly culture. In individual mission, students should join ‘green mate challenge’ and show how they are practicing zero waste with LocknLock products like tumbler and airtight container. They should also upload it in their social network service and encourage other MZs to join.
