Mega Companies Are Going Deep Green{Sustainability}



Yesterday, I attended a class of "Sustainability" Module. {Ooo, I really like the module name}. Well, basically, this module is all about environment idea and etc. {This would definitely be one of the most difficult modules}. Anyway, what I learned from this module is more than 3Rs{Reuse, Reduce and Recycle}. It is more on the facts, reasons, solutions ... on environmental issues.

Just like the idea of my module, there are so many mega companies going green as well. Finally, after securing their entrepreneur status in the market{ Making hell lot of cash from the people} , they are giving back. As the green trend is going strong day by day, I am sure that I did not make the wrong choice for my course. Okay, cut the crap! Let's go see what the mega companies did to make our world a better place!



Mega Phone Company - Nokia
Nokia has implemented a beneficial green plan. They are providing Nokia Kiosks at certain places in Malaysia such as The Garden in Midvalley, The Curve in Mutiara Damansara, and Giant Hypermarket in Bandar Kinrara. At these kiosks, people who have old or unused mobile phones, can recycle those phones and adopt a tree! This is such a wonderful plan! Well, even though the kiosks are not widely-available, it is a good start. After recycling your phone, they even help you to adopt a tree! Furthermore, you can even spot your adopted tree easily through Google Earth!


This is how the kiosk looks like! For tutorial on how to use the kiosk and locate your adopted tree in Indonesia, please click here

Mega Telecomunication Company - Digi
Digi is going "Deep Green". In this plan, Digi official is stating that "their main goal is to reduce their carbon dioxide footprint by 50% in 3-4 years". Oh my, what an ambitious goal! Well, I really like that they are going "Deep Green" as they are becoming the pioneer or the role model to promote environmental friendliness! In their "Deep Green" plan, they are saving from head to toe by using new equipments that save a lot. Besides that, they even create a fantastic website to promote "Deep Green" Plan. In this website, you can even send your pledge!!! I did it too(^^)

To name a few more Mega Companies:
  1. Mega Clothing Company : Guess - Green Jeans.
  2. Mega Electronic Appliances Company : Panasonic - More environmental products.

Basically, what I would like to present here is that not only My Little World is going green, The Whole World is going green to. So, be a part of the green! (^^)

Coming up: It is a promise post in previous post{PPIPP} - Cool short form!

It is good to recycle but it is useless if the effort only concentrate in the capital city only. It should be nationwide

Hi, thanks for the info about recycling old/used handphones. These handphone batteries are the real threat; chemical threat that is! I have kept a few old ones and didn't throw them away since I am afraid the batteries might harm our lands and water! By the way did your Course explained about how/ where can Malaysians throw/get rid of normal AA/AAA batteries? These type of batteries are used more than the rest and are hazardous too!

Keep on posting; am looking forward to read! Cheers!

You are so right. There is no use if only a certain places practices Green. I think that the government should launch a "Green" Waster Policy

Ashamed to say that currently in M'sia, it is quite difficult to locate a recycle center for batteries. Therefore, sometimes, I would either sell to the old newspaper man. But, currently, I am switching to rechargeable batteries, even though it is quite troublesome.
