Making An Impact: Azurah

Meet Azurah, Athlete-Activist

Find out how SportsSG athete, Azurah, is contributing to a more sustainable future.

Hi Azurah, tell us a little about yourself.

People say I wear many different hats. I am a national rugby player, and a former silat exponent. And now I’m called an advocate. I’m a huge believer in minimal and conscious living. This led to me becoming an entrepreneur and founding Wilder, in pursuit of building an impactful and positive business focused on waste-less living.

How do you carry sustainability through your everyday life?

In short, I waste as little as I can. For example, I do not let any food go to the waste bin. I compost food scraps, grow my edible garden, save ugly ingredients and buy locally as much as I can. The best part is whipping up a meal using these ingredients! I also build a community and a platform that get shared on Wilder, so that people can learn a few tips on minimising food waste.

What does being an athlete-activist mean to you?

It’s about setting an example and inspiring people to go after what’s important. People look up to athletes for their grit and determination. When we set our mind on something, anything can be possible. This mindset applies to sports, and to working towards a sustainable future as well.

What is the one action we can all do to live a more sustainable lifestyle?

You’d be surprised how much food can be saved from shopping only food that you need, or keeping excess food for later. Think about where our food comes from, and the hours that have been put in for us to have that fruit or vegetable on our plate.

We invite you to join the conversation on social media by using #MakingAnImpact. Let’s make an impact for tomorrow, today.
