Promoting recycling through a reward-based system

READING is a healthy habit but most people let their old books and magazines go to waste.

“We want to promote the 3R concept of reducing, reusing and recycling and we have a unique reward system for people who bring in their old books or magazines,” Earthagain Sdn Bhd marketing director Vinnie Tham said.

Tham said that they encouraged people to bring in old newspapers, books or magazines and varying Earth Reward points are awarded based on each kilogramme of materials.

“They can exchange the points for used books or other eco-friendly products like organic T-shirts or battery chargers,” she said during the company’s second recycling programme at 1 Utama shopping centre in Petaling Jaya recently.

She said that they would put up books that could still be used for sale or for exchange and send old books and newspapers for recycling.

“Our aim is to educate people about the importance of preserving our environment for the next generation.

“Our landfills are filling up fast and every one should play their part in reducing trash that end up there,” she added.

She said that Malaysia still has a long way to go in terms of recycling methods and they are also aiming to work with corporations to find solutions for managing recyclable materials.

Writers Wong Wei Cheng, 26, and Kay Ee Hooi, 26, were among those who turned up with stacks of old books to be recycled.

“We read a lot and there are really not many places for us to donate our old books and magazines to,” said Wong.

Those who signed up for the Earthagain membership had the RM10 administration fee waived and received a potted plant each.

There were also drawing and painting activities for children using eco-friendly art products.
