Be A Hero to Save Our Beach

On the 12th May 2019, Greatech Integration in collaboration with UTAR Sungai Long and Trash Hero Penang had successfully organized a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) beach cleaning programme at Batu Ferringhi Beach, Penang. 

Batu Ferringhi, one of Penang’s most popular destinations for both locals and tourists for picnics, leisure, and water sport activities, such as parasailing. Every visitors are expecting a scenic view but sadly, trash especially single-use plastics which are not biodegradable are being littered at the beach at an alarming rate. 

To create a positive environment, 30 students from UTAR Sungai Long and 20 employees from Greatech were split into 5 teams to pick up different categories of the rubbish: aluminum, glass, paper and unrecyclable items like plastics. It was heartwarming to witness a total of 50 volunteers who worked together and pick up the rubbish tirelessly. 

After an hour of picking up the trash, some interesting games were planned and conducted such as tug of war and dodge ball while waiting for the volunteers from Trash Hero Penang to classify and weigh the picked up trash. Although the fun activities were carrying on under the blazing sun, but it did not dampen the happiness of everyone. 

At the end of the day, we had been announced by Trash Hero Penang that more than 40kg of waste were collected. It was a great achievement for every one of us. Caring for the environment is not only the individual’s responsibility but collectively. Through this meaningful programme, it is hoped that by our small efforts contributed, positive awareness on the importance of a clean beach ecosystem can be promoted. Most importantly, we extend our sincere appreciation to UTAR Sungai Long’s Engineering & Science Fiesta committees and lecturer, Mr Thum who made their effort to travel from KL in making this event a complete. This activity has given us a chance to strengthen the relationship between Greatech employees and UTAR Sungai Long students.
