Article: Harvesting Rainwater
4th Aug 2009, by Green Animal Shelter & Sanctuary (GrASS)

Tuesday August 4, 2009FOR the last 4,000 years, rainwater collection has been widely used around the world. Even though we live in a fairly wet country with 990 cu.m of rainwater annually, let's not forget we went through a tough drought in 1998. Things have yet to reach a critical stage in Malaysia where people have no choice but to rely on rainwater although from time to time, the country has faced water shortage. Racing towards curbing the environmental dangers that we are facing today, the G...

Tuesday August 4, 2009 By CATHERINE CHONG IT was a messy job but it was all done in the name of saving Mother Earth.

Article: Outdated Cultural Practice
4th Aug 2009, by Green Animal Shelter & Sanctuary (GrASS)

Tuesday August 4, 2009I WISH to express my appreciation to Jane Ragavan for her article Culinary cruelty (July 27) which featured the famous Suckling Pig, a popular delicacy in Chinese weddings. I am not a vegetarian but I believe to a certain extent in controlling the degree of cruelty in killing animals to feed ourselves. I have chosen not to consume many of the delicacies in understanding of how the animals were killed to feed man's natural interest in food. For the same reason, I have never...
