Ismail congratulated everyone who participated in this activity as a show of concern for the environment though with this small contribution which actually has a great impact.

“These are ecosystem-friendly trees will contribute to a better climate, while produce oxygen and serve as carbon sinks,” he said.

He also hope that the Worldd Environment Dau celebration would promote the culture of environment appreciation in all aspects of life such as recycling practice, the use of disposable plastic bags and disposing of rubbish in the right place, especially amongst the younger generation.

World Environment Day is celebrated annually on 5 June. It was introduced in 1972 by the United Nations at a conference held in Stockholm, Sweden. Since 1974, the World Environment Day aimed at promoting global awareness as well as enhancing action in addressing these environmental issues has been celebrated by 143 countries.
