Recycle Plastic Packages From Online Purchases, Protect Environment, Consumers Urged

Published

on

SEREMBAN, Jan 27 — SWM Environment Sdn Bhd (SWM Environment) has urged the public to improve recycling practices by separating plastic packages received through online purchases.

Its Corporate Affairs general manager, Mohd Norlisam Mohd Nordin said that since online purchases ranked as the top choice among consumers during the Movement Control Order (MCO), Conditional MCO and Recovery MCO period, surely they would involve the use of lots of plastic packages.

“As such, we expect the dumping of plastic packages to continue to increase following the new norm of online purchases.

“The plastic waste that is generated takes about 400 years to decompose and generating too much plastic waste will make landfill sites compact as well as shorten their life spans,” he said in a statement today.

According to him, there was a 20 per cent increase in plastic waste recorded in 2018 compared to 2005, which was 44.5 per cent.

Mohd Norlisam said prudent waste management, especially plastic waste, is very important to ensure that the waste does not burden landfills and enable existing land resources to be used for national development purposes as well as the development of new landfill sites.

He also urged people in Negeri Sembilan, Melaka and Johor to continue to cultivate the practice of recycling from home and to register as members in the KITARecycle programme to help protect the environment.

“More than 20 items that can be recycled and earn reward points (under the programme) include papers, plastics, drink cans, metals, batteries, electronic items such as laptops, smartphones and televisions,” he said.

The KITARecycle programme is a reward-based recycling programme that enables registered members to collect reward points through recycling practices and redeem accumulated points through online money transfers, he explained.

For those of you who do not know, the trees around the water slide actually have functions of their own. It is not there just for aesthetic purposes. ESCAPE Penang has transplanted more than 100 trees, rescuing them from construction sites where they would have been cut down. ESCAPE has a ‘tree adoption’ program that encourages landowners to contact ESCAPE for transplanting unwanted trees from their lands to sites operated by ESCAPE.

To find out the experience of the water slide route, Guinness World Records has shared a video showing highlights from the four-minute journey through it.

Man Cheats On 35 Women By Becoming Their Lover, Just To Get Birthday Gift

Published

A Japanese man has been arrested after cheating on 35 women at the same time, to get a gift for his birthday. The 39-year-old would try to approach women and pretend to want to make them his girlfriend, just to get a gift in conjunction with his birthday.

The suspect from Kansai, Japan will give each of his ‘lovers’ a different ‘birthday’ date.

According to a report, the total number of women who became victims was 35 but it was reported that the actual number of victims exceeded that number.

He told one of his 47-year-old victims that his birthday was Feb. 22.

Meanwhile, another 40-year-old victim claimed he told her that his birthday was in July and a 35-year-old woman said that she thought the man’s birthday was in April.

His actual birthday falls on November 13th.

He not only cheated the women in terms of cash, as well as some expensive clothes for one of his birthdays, but he also managed to sell some of the toiletries he sold, all for a profit.

It is believed that he is targeting single women, starting a relationship by indicating that he wants to get married at some point later.

The man’s actions were then uncovered after all the women who were his victims ‘cooperated’ and then reported his cunning tactics to the police last February.

The suspect allegedly deceived all his victims where it was reported that the result of his fraud reached 100,000 yen including gifts, clothes, and cash.
