Preserving the environment by teaching children to love it

23rd September, 2019

By NOOR ZAFIRA SHAFIE

KOTA KINABALU: Young children must be guided and be taught to love the environment at an early age if the society hopes to see the environment preserved.

Sepanggar MP Datuk Azis Jaman said that the young ones must first be taught about the harmfulness of throwing rubbish indiscriminately.

“Then we can be assured that when they grow up, they will not have such bad habit. They will be in the forefront of keeping the environment clean.

“And the community will be able to preserve the environment well,” he said.

Azis said a clean community would lead others to follow the footsteps and in no time, the nation would realise its dream to have a clean environment or a rubbish-free country.

Therefore, he said, any awareness programme of such nature, would be supported by all quarters. Azis was speaking at a World Cleanup Day programme organized by Trash Hero Borneo at Tanjung Lipat here on Saturday.

He said that protecting and keeping the environment clean is the responsibility of everyone.

The event was also participated by Korean Air, its first corporate social responsibility in the country.

A representative, Young Do Jeon said the airline is honoured to be able to bring Korean visitors to Malaysia especially Sabah.

“We also inform our guests on the cultures of Malaysia and that they must help to protect the environment when visiting Malaysia,” Do Jeon said.

Some 1,040 volunteers took part in the four-hour programme.

Trash Hero Borneo which was set up in 2017 managed to pool 7,000 volunteers to do beach cleanups in Kota Kinabalu, Tuaran, Tamparuli, Sandakan, Lahad Datu, Papar, Kota Kinabalu and Semporna.

Two groups in Sarawak also carried out similar cleanups in Limbang and Bintulu.
