Simple and inexpensive ways to go green
by Nur Khairah Alegria Suner
Going green does not necessarily have to cost you a fortune. It can start with a simple gesture like turning off the lights and air-conditioner when they are not in use. According to Centre for Environment, Technology and Development Malaysia (Cetdem) executive director Anthony Tan Kee Huat, not all green initiatives or technologies are costly.
“One of the most powerful tools are our fingers. With our fingers, we have the power to switch off the lights or any electrical appliances not being used. “It does not cost anything. In fact, you gain more by saving and cutting your electricity bills,” Tan told FMT after attending the European Climate Diplomacy Week forum at Taylor’s University yesterday.
