Environmental Preservation on Malaysia Day
Leo Club embarked on a meaningful mission as they participated in the Life & Lions Joint Project held at Dataran Merdeka in conjunction with the Malaysia Game Festival. Organised by Jabatan Kebudayaan dan Kesenian Negara (JKNN) and other collaborative partners, this initiative has become a platform for Leo Club to take part in the contribution to environmental preservation on Malaysia Day.
The key aspect of the project was to distribute free paper straws to all Food & Beverage (F&B) stalls throughout the festival. Leo Club was diligent and hard at work, distributing over 15,000 paper straws to promote an eco-friendly alternative to plastic straws.
Aiming to reduce the level of plastic waste while also being stewards of environmental sustainability, Leo Club really went above and beyond to ensure their mission was complete.
Advocates for Environmental Conservation
Driven by a deep passion for environmental conservation, Leo Club wanted to ensure that their commitment to this project made a lasting impact. Choosing to distribute paper straws was a way that the Leos used to raise the important message of how devastating the use of plastic is for our environment.
What better day to choose to spread this awareness than Malaysia Day! With an incredibly diverse ecosystem that houses thousands of different flora and fauna, plastic pollution not only affects our environment but also poses a threat to wildlife and marine ecosystems. It is crucial for us to take action now to reduce plastic waste and promote sustainable practices.
The message is clear: unite in this commitment to safeguard our invaluable national heritage with simple yet impactful choices.
Greater Environmental Consciousness
The distribution of paper straws is more than just a practical solution; it is also a call to action for all Malaysians. Encouraging the Malaysian population to adopt more eco-friendly practices is a crucial step in ensuring the conservation of our nation's natural and even urban landscapes.
Leo Club's efforts are a resounding statement that our youth are the catalyst for environmental conservation. Distributing over 15,000 paper straws is a feat that the Leos can be proud of and one that has undoubtedly made an impact.
