PARAMKL 2012

The Green Journey

A project that started off in 2010, grew in 2011 and turned green in 2012. This time around we decided that on top of facilitating the exchange of information on www.paramkl.com.my we would add on a green element. We distributed free tupperwares at selected Param’s in the Klang Valley.

The tupperware give-away idea came from observations of past Param’s where people tend to buy too much food as well as use too many plastic bags. With the tupperware, one could buy food that is sufficient and recycle it too, negating the need for plastic bags.

Suffice to say the tupperwares went like hot ‘apam balik’s’. We hope that albeit a small step, that this creates the awareness in the minds of people to be conscious of over-buying and to also recycle, reheat and reuse. We certainly hope you did as RA spent RM5000 in obtaining those tupperwares, design and printing of the A-boards and stickers all for you lovely people.

PARAMKL 2012 would not have happened without the support of WAGO, and all the community and youth groups that came out to help us with the distribution.
