“In addition, we will publish reports in the form of visual data to be shared on social media to raise public awareness about the effects of uncontrolled waste disposal.

“This CSR programme is one of PSM’s initiatives to help the community while preserving the environment,” he said.

Also representing Trash Hero Kuantan Trash were Anne Vendargon and Syarifah Syazrah Syed Ab Mutalib.

For Professor Dr. Mohd Zuki, garbage on the beach not only mars the view but also harms the ecosystem for animals in the sea.

In addition, this programme fostered a sense of responsibility and love for the environment for students and strengthened student relationships with PSM staff.
