“The 1Malaysia Green, 1Malaysia Clean campaign is part of the ministry’s efforts to engage the public and corporations to make Malaysia clean and attractive for all residents,” said Dr Ng.

The ministry would allocate RM5mil for the first phase for promotions and activities for the campaign throughout the year.

The campaign will involve the public, tourists, secondary school students, private bodies and non-governmental organisations (NGOs).

The campaign will be promoted in The Star’s special environment pullout – Go Green Live Green every third Tuesday of the month.

The Star will also make the 1Malaysia Green, 1Malaysia Clean part of its BRATs activities and it will also feature in the The Star Kids Fair 2010.
