Simple and inexpensive ways to go green
by Nur Khairah Alegria Suner

Going green does not necessarily have to cost you a fortune. It can start with a simple gesture like turning off the lights and air-conditioner when they are not in use. According to Centre for Environment, Technology and Development Malaysia (Cetdem) executive director Anthony Tan Kee Huat, not all green initiatives or technologies are costly.

“One of the most powerful tools are our fingers. With our fingers, we have the power to switch off the lights or any electrical appliances not being used. “It does not cost anything. In fact, you gain more by saving and cutting your electricity bills,” Tan told FMT after attending the European Climate Diplomacy Week forum at Taylor’s University yesterday.

Maintenance key to addressing environmental issues, says activist
Stories by TERENCE TOH

Speaking at the launch of his book Memoirs of a Malaysian Eco-Activist, the Penang-born activist said Malaysians were very good at constructing new things, but terrible at keeping them maintained. “Everyone thinks planting trees is great. But they forget that trees have to be maintained.

On the future of the nation’s environment, Gurmit Singh said he hoped the new generation would be more environmentally conscious. “My hope is that more young people will get involved with environmental issues, but with their eyes open. “If you go back and look at the new generation, they like instant results. “But environmental issues cannot have instant results. You have to look at the long-term,” he said.

Present at the launch was World Islamic Economic Forum chairman and former deputy prime minister Tun Musa Hitam. Describing their relationship as one of “constructive engagement”, Musa commended Gurmit Singh’s spirit of always speaking up fearlessly for the environment while keeping himself free of political influence.

“You (Gurmit Singh) trained me during the course of my leadership, up to the number two in the country, to be able to tolerate and appreciate feedback in the roughest way possible, the rougher the better,” Musa said in his speech. “We need more people like him in the political and social system,” he said.
