Press Statement by Vice-Chairman of Penang Green Council
In conjunction with the Earth Day Celebration 2016, I am happy to announce that Starbucks has come on board to join us as Penang Green Partner.
Worldwide, the migration from polystyrene cups usage to paper cups coated with plastic have caused environmental concerns and the increase of carbon footprint. Most municipal councils have voiced their concerns. In Penang, MBPP and MPSP have also highlighted this issue.
As one of the leading International coffee chain, Starbucks acknowledged this global concern and they are trying to reduce consumption of disposable cups globally. We are positive that Starbucks is taking proactive initiative to set an example and work together with the consumers and government on improving their environmental responsibilities.
The State Government in the collaboration with Starbucks, we are promoting our newly designed limited edition activity book “My Green Scavenger” and the use of washable and reusable Starbucks tumblers.
To date, more than 16,000 Penang residents have pledged to be Penang Green Citizens. In order to strengthen the messages of the 10 initiatives in the pledge, we have illustrated the messages in the limited edition activity book ‘My Green Scavenger’ for green citizens. The activity book is designed by a famous comic artist – Lefty Julian. He is a Penang-born comic artist who has spent many years working for major advertising and publication firms in Kuala Lumpur and Singapore. He has since returned to Penang and actively involved in the local art scene, his recent works include the “Marking George Town” iron rod art installation, “Airwells: Elemental Spaces” for George Town World Heritage Inc (GTWHI) and the “Pulau Tikus Community Stories” bus-stop art series.”
