Environmental Awareness Trip at Pulau Ketam, Selangor, Malaysia

Hey ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป all, Happy 65th Malaysia National Day ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ๐Ÿ’—

SiennyLovesDrawing ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป as a go green supporter this time gonna sharing with you all about her amazing eco & environmental awareness familiarisation (FAM) trip recently at Pulau Ketam ๐Ÿฆ€๐Ÿ๏ธ, Selangor, Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ

This 2๏ธโƒฃD1๏ธโƒฃN FAM trip was well organised ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป by Holiday Link Sdn Bhd & being supported by Tourism Selangor, Menteri Besar Selangor Incorporated, Malaysian Inbound Tourism Association (MITA) & Majlis Pengurusan Komuniti Kampung (MPKK) Bagan Pulau Ketam

.

The trip 1๏ธโƒฃst started with a meet up of all trip participants (Mostly tourism players, travel agents, travel companies & tour guide) & then departed from South Port Passenger Terminal, Port Klang for a speed boat ๐Ÿ›ฅ๏ธ ride with Huat Huat Speedboat of approximately 30mins to Pulau Ketam ๐Ÿฆ€๐Ÿ

Safe arrival to Pulau Ketam, met & greeted with the tour guide from Pulau Ketam, Mr Loo & then captured a group photo ๐Ÿ“ธ @ KETAM signboard. All trip participants then left their luggage at Sea Lion Hotel for Pulau Ketam guided walking tour of approximately 3๏ธโƒฃ hours

.

After the walking tour, all enjoyed tasty fresh seafood lunch served in Restoran Heng Heng Kopitiam ๐Ÿฝ๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

After lunch, met with Tok Chua Kim Lin, the President of Majlis Pengurusan Komuniti Kampung (MPKK) Bagan Pulau Ketam, Negeri Selangor. Tok Chua Kim Lin has encouraged all trip participants to organise more tours/ trips to visit to Pulau Ketam. During the met-up session, Mr. Kenny Ng, Vice President (VP) Inbound of MITA has suggested to Tok Chua Kim Lin to organise more cleaning & rubbish collection campaigns as rubbish are observed during the walking tour in Pulau Ketam & this may affect the potential tourism growth of this island to the tourists. This session ended with a tea time treat by MPKK Bagan Pulau Ketam @ Restoran Heng Heng Kopitiam ๐Ÿฝ๏ธ๐Ÿฅฃ๐Ÿค๐Ÿฅค๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿปย  as an appreciation to all trip participants

Checked in to Sea Lion Hotel ๐Ÿจ๐Ÿ›๏ธ, then the trip participants also get to enjoy an approximately 2๏ธโƒฃ hours Pulau Ketam boat tour ๐Ÿ›ฅ๏ธ to visit the fish farm, Sg.

All trip participants ended the day with a satisfied fresh seafood platter dinner at Restoran Jia Jia ๐Ÿฝ๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ€ผ๔ŽฐŠ

The highlight of this trip that SiennyLovesDrawing really enjoyed personally is the visit & environmental awareness program at the Pulau Ketam Tzu Chi Environmental Protection Recycling Station (Tzu Chi) โ™ป๏ธ which established since 25 Oct 2011 in Pulau Ketam ๐Ÿฆ€๐Ÿ๏ธ

All trip participants get to participate in the local environmental awareness program with Tzu Chi volunteers. The program started with an introduction of Tzu Chi Association & their go green ๐Ÿ’šโ™ป๏ธ efforts by Tzu Chi Association in Pulau Ketam to raise the environmental awareness. From this session, all trip participants got to know that the rubbish condition in Pulau Ketam ๐Ÿฆ€๐Ÿ๏ธ has been improved better since the go green awareness efforts by Tzu Chi to the local island residents here , of course it can be improved greater for a cleaner Pulau Ketam in near future for the local island residents as well as local & foreign visitors

.

Next, a warm up body session with a light aerobic exercise led by the Tzu Chi volunteers. Then, followed with a split of 2๏ธโƒฃ groups trip participants for an outdoor activity to the nearby recycle collection station to assemble & classification of reusable resources, then collected all the reusable resources into the reusable fish nets & returned to Pulau Ketam Tzu Chi Environmental Protection Station โ™ป๏ธ

After the group photo ๐Ÿ“ธ session of all trip participants with the reusable resources collected, hand washing session & then the reusable resources processing explanation session by Tzu Chi volunteers. All trip participants get to understand the brief features of the processing & transferring reusable โ™ป๏ธโœ… resources by the different grade of plastics

It’s really not easy to do recycling ๐Ÿ’šโ™ป๏ธ, of course the 1๏ธโƒฃst buy in of the local residents to willingly put in the reusable resources into the collection station set up. However, there are a minority of local residents that misused the collection station as another dustbin on the island ๐Ÿ™„

After the collection of reusable resources, SiennyLovesDrawing ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป has learnt that lots of tedious works involved especially the separation of different parts of a plastic reusable resources collected. Other reusable resources collected are glass ๐Ÿพ, boxes/ cardboard ๐Ÿ“ฆ, papers ๐Ÿ—ž๏ธ, books ๐Ÿ“š, CDs etc.

Guess whatโ“โ‰๏ธ

Glass bottles ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ can be recycled by using a special machine to crushing them into small glass pieces, then can be mixed into soil for plantation ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒณ purposes

Amazing learning gained ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Yeahโ€ผ๏ธ A yummy healthy vegetarian lunch ๐Ÿฝ๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป prepared by Tzu Chi volunteers as an appreciation to all trip participants for their visit & go green activity participation by all trip participants

All enjoyed the lunch happily ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜

.

The program is then followed by Q&A, as well as an experience sharing session. During the sharing session, Tzu Chi volunteers have encouraged all the trip participants to include an environmental awareness session in their tours or trips organised moving forward, so that more people will be encouraged to start their own go green habits respectively ๐Ÿ’šโ™ป๏ธ๐ŸŒŽ

Ms Yap SC of Holiday Link Sdn Bhd, the trip organiser has shared her appreciation ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’— to all trip participants for their participation in this FAM trip & encouraged all trip participants to start organising similar environmental awareness tours/ trips moving forward

Ms Yik Thim of Tourism Selangor shared that her shopping habit now is too lazy to buy ๐Ÿ›๏ธ It means if she knows she will throw the item subsequently, she will not buy it now โŒ๐Ÿ›๏ธ It’s a good way to reduce on 3๏ธโƒฃR efforts. She has added that she does home cooking ๐Ÿง‘๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿณ, so now she uses her kitchen waste / food waste from her daily home cooking preparation as home plant fertilizer. Then, her home plant ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฑ will then grow as her own home cooking ingredients. Amazing way of being environmentally friendly ๐Ÿ’š๐ŸŒŽ

.

Ms Jennifer of Tzu Chi has added that parcels ๐Ÿ“ฆ from online shopping actually causing lots of headache in Tzu Chi’s recycle efforts especially the sticking tape on the parcel ๐Ÿ“ฆ box that the Tzu Chi volunteers have to remove the tapes from each parcel box ๐Ÿ“ฆ during the process of recycling the reusable resources

Mr, Kenny Ng, VP Inbound of MITA has suggested to Tzu Chi volunteers to collaborate more with the associations outside of Pulau Ketam ๐Ÿฆ€๐Ÿ๏ธ, also to start influencing the younger generations to educate them on 3๏ธโƒฃR efforts ie. Reduce, Reuse & Recycle โ™ป๏ธ. Those can reuse or repair, don’t buy ๐Ÿ†• one

At the end of this trip, many trip participants have agreed ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป to organise more eco & environmental awareness tours moving forward & start with own self 1๏ธโƒฃst & then influencing people around on go green โ™ป๏ธ habits ~ 3๏ธโƒฃRs for a better planet ๐ŸŒŽ to live in

Yes โœ…, let’s all continue to do our part for a better living environment, each of us play an important role in go green efforts ya ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

SiennyLovesDrawing ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป would like to recommend this as an educational activity for our younger generation especially to impart environmental knowledge, raise environmental awareness & encourage all to protect our Mother Earth through practical actions โ™ป๏ธ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
