For those of you who are not yet familiar with the vision and mission of Trash2Gather , please find our statement as follows:
Trash2Gather is a project under Malaysian Nature Society Kuching Branch (MNSKB) with the vision to reduce the amount of rubbish present in our estuarine waterways in South Western Sarawak within a period of 5 years.
The project aims to mobilize between 700 – 1500 community members and volunteers to clean beaches and estuarine areas by 2022.
Besides the cleaning of beaches and estuarine areas, other activities such as talks and campaigns will create awareness about the amount of rubbish present in our estuarine waterways and the consequences of such pollution among the communities and the general public.
Ultimately the project also targets to reduce the amount of rubbish produced through the 5Rs: Reduce – Reuse – Recycle – Refuse – Repair.
v Organize regularly repeating clean-up events in selected areas to reduce the current state of pollution
v Collaborate with issue-related organizations and government departments to find long-term solutions to rubbish collection problems in selected areas
v Promote the 5 R’s (Reduce – Reuse – Recycle – Refuse – Repair) by demonstrating examples and encouragement through incentives
v Monitor developments and provide feedback
If you are interested to donate or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at Trash2Gather@gmail.com or call our project facilitator Nicki Neuner (+6011 12308849) or Rose Au (+60168909468).
Thanks & regards from the Trash2Gather team!
