SHAH ALAM, July 8 (Bernama) -- The Selangor government has allocated RM750,000 for 109 selected associations and organisations under its Small Grants for Environmental and Green Technology Programme.

State Environment, Green Technology, Science, Technology and Innovation, and Consumer Affairs Committee chairman, Hee Loy Sian said this followed encouraging response to the programme last year.

"This is the second year we are implementing it and we have allocated RM250,000 for the environment grants and RM500,000 for the green technology grants.

“Through this programme, the allocation is channelled for the purpose of sponsoring innovative environmental and green technology projects and activities that involve the local community,” he said when met by reporters after handing out the cheques for the grants, here, today.

Hee said public awareness of the importance of green technology needed to be raised from time to time towards more efficient use of environmental-friendly, renewable energy.

Asked on the ‘No-Plastic Straw’ campaign which started on July 1, he urged all eatery operators in Selangor to adhere to the directive issued to keep aside the plastic straws and to only provide it to customers on demand.

"For packet drinks that come with straws, we hope the manufacturers could think of the best way to reduce the use of these plastic straws.

"We are not forcing them but only hoping they could assist the government by playing their role in this campaign and not just think of reaping profits,” said Hee.
