A SMALL gesture like saying no to plastic bags is a good way to start caring for Mother Earth.
“I don’t think a lot of people know how severe our environmental problem is and I’m doing my bit by using my own shopping bags,” actress Chelsia Ng said.
The 27-year-old lanky beauty was one of the celebrities present at the launch of the Estée Lauder Companies Malaysia’s Recycle for a Better Tomorrow campaign at Mid Valley Megamall.
Part of the company’s Earth Month 2009 effort, specially made recycling bins would be placed at Level 3 of the mall to help create awareness on the importance of recycling.
“This is our first project in Malaysia and we hope to set up more bins in other malls where we have branches,” said Estée Lauder Companies Malaysia managing director Loo Kai Nan.
He urges the public to bring recyclable products to these bins to be recycled.
“You can start with your recyclable Estee Lauder Companies packaging, be in the boxes or empty bottles from your favourite favourite beauty products,” Loo said.
Among the other celebrities who showed their support for the event were Bernie Chan, Azura Zainal, William San and Danell Lee.
The recycling campaign ends on June 30.
