A TOTAL of 2,000 trees were planted in Taman Tasik Shah Alam to help green the city.

The effort was a collaboration between “One Canon One Tree” by Canon Marketing Malaysia and “Shah Alam Trees for Life” by the Shah Alam City Council (MBSA).

Besides tree planting, Canon Malaysia contributed RM25,000 to MBSA to support its green efforts.

“The trees we planted today is for our future and the next generation, ” said Shah Alam mayor Datuk Haris Kasim.

“We welcome other companies, non-governmental organisations or any individual to collaborate with us to organise such programmes.”

Haris added that MBSA plans to upgrade Taman Tasik Shah Alam to attract more visitors.

Canon Marketing Malaysia president and chief executive officer Andrew Koh said the company shares a common goal with the city council.

“We want to reduce carbon emissions and raise awareness about preserving the environment, ” he said.

About 460 people took part in the effort including Canon and MBSA employees, volunteers from Eco-Warrior as well as SK Subang Bestari 2 pupils.
