Things Malaysians Are Already Doing To Save The Environment

The Rakyat Post written by Melissa Suraya Ismail - April, 2022

In conjunction with Earth Day, let’s take a look at some of the efforts that Malaysian people are already doing to save the environment.

This year’s Earth Day (22 April) is themed ‘Invest In Our Planet‘ which implores all of us (businesses, governments, citizens) to act boldly, innovate broadly and implement equitably.

Here in Malaysia, we also have been doing our very best to save the Earth and some of them are listed below. As citizens, we should do our very best to support these efforts for a brighter and safer future.

Here are some of the efforts already done in Malaysia to go green.

Creating Eco-Friendly Products

Some humble homegrown businesses are producing green products to care for the environment.

The Mineraw – Clean & Vegan Skincare

Locally sourced, The Mineraw is a skincare brand that’s 100% natural, and suitable for all skin types. Not only do they have minimalistic and beautiful packaging, but their packaging also comes in recyclable containers.

As mass-produced products may contain chemical fillers and have a large carbon footprint, The Mineraw’s products are consciously made in small batches.

“As someone who has always been extremely environmentally conscious, as well as passionate about skincare, I believed in the earth and using clean ingredients where possible,” said the founder of The Mineraw, Jidienne Ibañez.

Take a look at their products here.
