Penang Skills Development Center (PSDC) together with CIMB Foundation distributed 1000 complimentary Effective Microorganism Activated Solution (EMAS) starter kits to the residents of Bayan Baru, Penang.
The objective of the event is to introduce EMAS to the local community.
CIMB's Regional Director, Liew Chee Cheang said that the bank has sponsored RM 100K to PSDC Green Program initiatives.
EMAS is made from organic products and can be used for household cleaning, laundry, gardening and even on pets.
It is an effective and healthy alternative to the conventional chemical based solutions and fertilizers. PSDC aims to encourage the adoption of EMAS among the Bayan Baru residents which will eventually contribute to cleaning the rivers in due time.
Dato Boonler Somchit, CEO of PSDC also mentioned that PSDC has adopted the nearby Sungai Nibong Kecil which has been polluted by domestic and industrial pollutants for decades. PSDC has confidence that EMAS can help to "heal" this river in due time.
