PLASTIC FREE UNIVERSITY!


Hooray for Universiti Sains Malaysia for the their campaign to stop using plastic bags. What better way to practice environmental consciousness beginning from young and bright minds, like this university's students. I think this is one of the many activities that parents should encourage their children to take part in. ( This kind of activity shows more action rather than just only words).

The students found that a campaign to recycle plastic bags was ineffective and opted to not use plastic bags at all in the campus. So to replace the plastics bags to buy groceries and take-away food, the students promote greener ways of shopping like carrying a reusable shopping bag and bringing your own container to 'tapau' food. Good job USM!

I found this very interesting blog from the Healthy Campus Coordinator himself. Read on for the insights of their sustainable campus life at Kampus Sejahtera @ USM

my university will also organize this campaign this year...not sure when because we haven't finish with the paperwork yet... we're really hoping everyone will take part... our club is quite slow because we're new and lack of enthusiast among members...
