Trash Hero Langkawi has had a couple of tough weeks with lots of cleanups, lots of volunteers and a hugh result in picked up trash!
There has been one cleanup performed with Kem Bini Negara and students from UUM (Mainland) . Then there were two cleanups during project Revive with very good results.
This week started with a phone call from LADA. They wanted us to be in their Geopark show on the radio (Langkawi FM) on thursday. Went for a meeting with them and got some questions they would ask us. They wanted both me and Zan to be there so we could talk in english and Bahasa Malayu. That was incredible fun! We got to spend a whole hour there and talk about Trash Hero Langkawi!
LADA also pedged to join our cleanup and to sponsor for food. They asked me if I could arrange for the catering since I requested that there would be no plastic and no styrofoam.
So they saturday comes and we start of with brekfast at Nest rooftop.
When we arrive to the cleanup site we are greeted with a lot of people. LADA is there, E Idaman is there and some random volunteers. I immidiately get informed that Tan Sri Khalid is going to join us. Tan Sri Khalid is the CEO of LADA who are the government authority on the Island. Basically the boss of Langkawi! ;)
I do my talk and we start cleaning, the waterfall is beautiful (I havent visited before) and it´s a nice day. Divided into groups we go to different places and after a while the results starts to come back. (And so does the trash…)
Well the day wasn´t over with the cleanup, first some food and then off to Langkawi Wild Life Park where we were invited to come. Lots of fun feeding the animals there! I love that place!
Trash Picked up: 710 kilos
