Dear Green lovers,
Subj: Tree planting event on 29th Apr 2012, at 6, Persiaran Pasak Bumi, Taman Bukit Jelutong, Seksyen U8, 40150 Shah Alam, Selangor
Celebrate Earth Day – plant some trees! FB page http://www.facebook.com/events/289668384440516/
The world has lost almost half of the forests that once covered the earth’s surface. Climate change continues unabated. It seems there’s a new ecological disaster happening almost daily. This Earth Day it’s time to mobilize the planet from the ground up to send a message that the Earth won’t wait! Let’s make every day an Earth Day and start planting trees!
Trees provide us with more than just hardwood floors and the paper upon which your newspaper is printed. Like natural air conditioners, trees rid the air of excess carbon dioxide and replace it with oxygen. In fact some mature trees can create enough oxygen in a day to support a family of four. Tree roots act as water filters for groundwater, trapping pollutants and contaminants. Trees also help to prevent flooding and soil erosion. You can no doubt add to the list with benefits of your own.
Earth Day is celebrated on April 22 every year. To commemorate this year’s Earth Day, the Organising Committee of ‘SHAH ALAM river & trees FOR LIFE’ is organizing a tree planting event on 29th Apr around SPACE U8 MALL, Bukit Jelutong. Space U8 is the first Green mall of its kind which subscribe to the Green Building Index. . Please come along with your family members, friends and colleagues to make this event a success. Location map and the day’s program are attached for your reference. Please confirm your participation with the name list of volunteers by the 26th Apr 2012.
Last but not the least, the Organising Committee would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to all Volunteers who turned up for the Tree Planting event on 25th Mar 2012 at Sg Damansara, Section 13, Shah Alam and made the event a great success.
