Do more to pro­tect planet earth

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Opinion -

I AM to­tally with Man­gai Balasegaram in “Put down that chicken leg” (Hu­man Writes, June 11). Yes, we re­ally need to go meat­less, even for one day. I will round up some friends to go veg­e­tar­ian, at least for a day.

And there is also the is­sue of eat­ing lo­cally. Eat­ing food that is grown close to where you buy it from will help re­duce car­bon emis­sions, as the food is trans­ported over shorter dis­tances. And it would also sup­port lo­cal farm­ers.

Even when you go on hol­i­day, eat what lo­cals eat at your des­ti­na­tions.

We need to do more to pro­tect our planet earth. So walk the talk here, do other things too, like con­serve wa­ter and save elec­tric­ity, and al­ways re­use and re­cy­cle. MK
