Nissan Nurtures Nature in Bayan Lepas and Batu Pahat

On the 23rd and 24th June 2018, the first campaign of Nissan Nurtures Nature was completed with success at Batu Pahat and Bayan Lepas branches of Edaran Tan Chong Motor showrooms. This was the first campaign of Nissan with a purpose of teaching the public in general environmental awareness and planting herbs in an easy and convenient way to take care of them from recycled plastic water bottles. Through the DIY self-watering workshop, the participants learnt a proper method in creating their own DIY self-watering systems with the choice of herbs and this is one of the ways in reducing carbon dioxide emission. Edaran Tan Chong Motor sponsored all the recycled plastic bottles needed throughout the workshop and also 3 types of herbs - coriander, oregano and parsley for the participants.

There were 155 of Nissan’s potential buyers and their family members who participated in this campaign which was divided into two activities:

  • Eco Talk by Mdm Yasmin Rasyid and Ms Nabila from EcoKnights with a topic of “Food For Talk” (Bayan Lepas, Pulau Penang) and Mr Ashaari from Poptani Asia with a topic of “Food and Us” at Batu Pahat, Johor.
  • DIY self-watering system workshop using recycled plastic water bottles and herbs

The participants who learnt the DIY self-watering system will be able to start or practice in adopting a greener lifestyle and with this knowledge they would be empowered to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide emission, in line with the objective of this project.
