PETALING JAYA: About 300 people spent their Sunday morning doing their bit for nature in conjunction with Earth Day.

Volunteers from the Save Our Waterfalls cleaned up a 2.5km stretch of Templer’s Park waterfall and picnic areas in Rawang yesterday.

President and founder of Waterfall Survivors Joe Yap said the fourth Earth Day celebration focused on education.

“This time we not only cleaned up but also raised awareness on why cleanliness is important,” she said, adding that government agencies should look into the lack of cleanliness at many spots in the country.

Waterfall Survivors is an organisation that advocates back to nature activities.

Participant Matthias Gelber said every day should be like Earth Day.

“We need to ask ourselves: Are we a part of the problem or the solution?’” said Gelber, who was dubbed the Greenest Man on Earth in 2008.

The campaign was supported and endorsed by the Selangor state government and Forestry Department, along with the Selayang Municipal Council and other corporate bodies.
