Article: Clever Wallets
6th Oct 2009, by Green Animal Shelter & Sanctuary (GrASS)

Tuesday October 6, 2009 By TAN CHENG LI WHO would have thought empty milk and juice cartons can actually be transformed into something useful like wallets. With a few folds, adhesive and Velcro, the US company Milkmuny has turned these discards into clever origami-esque wallets and at the same time, spread the word on recycling and generate funds for schools and the environment. In the five months that the company has been running, it has sold hundreds of these snaz...

6th Oct 2009, by Green Animal Shelter & Sanctuary (GrASS)

Tuesday October 6, 2009FIGHT over-packaging – and the garbage glut – with these steps: > Precycle. Choose the product with the least (or most environmentally friendly) packaging. If it is over-packaged, don't buy it. > Avoid food wrapped in individual serving sizes such as cheese slices, biscuits, juices, chocolates, non-dairy creamer and three-in-one drink sachets. > Tell companies what you think. Write to the Customer Services Department and explain why you're not buying that pro...

Article: Taking Responsibility
6th Oct 2009, by Green Animal Shelter & Sanctuary (GrASS)

Tuesday October 6, 2009A look at what manufacturers and households in other countries are doing to cut down on packaging. THEY made it. So they should take care of it. That's the approach that guides packaging laws the world over. They draw upon the principle of "extended producer responsibility" (EPR) which makes manufacturers deal with proper disposal of their packaging and product at their end of useful live. The first such legislation is the 1991 German Ordinance on the Avoidance of Packagi...

Article: Buried Under The Layers
6th Oct 2009, by Green Animal Shelter & Sanctuary (GrASS)

Tuesday October 6, 2009 By TAN CHENG LI Malaysians are still enamoured with pretty presentations – and that spells trouble for the environment. THE tiny present wrapped inside a box which is put into a bigger box, and a yet bigger box and so on, may be a good joke for a birthday or Christmas. In reality, unfortunately, many goods are actually packed like that. Supermarket shelves brim over with such examples of over-packaging. Take, for instance, that popular bran...

View: Look Deeper Into ‘eco-Tourism’
6th Oct 2009, by Green Animal Shelter & Sanctuary (GrASS)

Tuesday October 6, 2009I REFER to the letter "Eco-tourism can be top draw" (The Star, Oct 3) and I wish to shed some light on the term eco-tourism. First, I am a delighted that someone has highlighted Malaysian spots for nature appreciation. However, the examples given were not a true reflection of eco-tourism per se. The International Ecotourism Society defines eco-tourism as "responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment and improves the well-being of local people". What w...

View: Don’t Bring In Mekong Giant Catfish
4th Oct 2009, by Green Animal Shelter & Sanctuary (GrASS)

Sunday October 4, 2009SAHABAT Alam Malaysia (SAM) is outraged by the proposal of the Terengganu Mentri Besar to bring the Mekong giant catfish to Tasik Kenyir. There is one thing that is of greater value than our own recreation and that is maintaining the integrity of the lake's ecosystem and the balance of the native species which cannot be duplicated or replaced. To alter these systems for our pleasure is not only thoughtless and selfish, it will also be disastrous. In the promotion of sport f...

"Mud is one of the least sustainable methods of construction in the monsoon tropics," says Kevin Low of Small Projects, who spent some time in Sana'a Yemen, studying the ancient city's building technology. He also did a workshop on rammed earth with an Arizona architect in the US and drew the plans for the mud houses at Sekeping Serendah in Selangor. Low feels our culture's indigenous architecture is one of the surest w...
