The Malaysian government has taken steps to curb the usage of plastic bags among Malaysians. However, this is still very much a problem. Most people are still requesting plastic bags in shopping malls rather than carrying their own environmental friendly bags from home. This prompted the government to introduce biodegradable plastics to overcome the problem.
In recent years, there has been a rise in environmental conscious parties and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) that have been passionately pushing for a greener environment through the many go-green campaigns.
The Plastic Free July campaign is an initiative of the Plastic Free Foundation which came about in 2011. Its strives for a world free of plastic waste. Since its inception, the campaign, described as one of the most influential environmental campaign globally, has witnessed the participation of millions around the world. The Plastic Free Foundation was founded in 2017 in Western Australia.
Meanwhile, the stunning Priyadarshimi is also the founder and president of the Malaysian Sai Welfare Progress Association which was established in 2012, aimed at uplifting the lives of society by providing skills and training programmes.
Sai Welfare provides free makeup lessons, tailoring lessons, and sponsors sewing machines to single mothers. Apart from that, the centre has also been sponsoring free uniforms, water filters and tuition fees for 10 underprivileged children in Seremban.
By distributing daily necessities to the under-privileged, she has helped ease their burden during the challenging Movement Control Order (MCO) period.
