What People Say
We’ve given talks all across Malaysia. Here are some of the responses we’ve received.
If you have heard us give our talks before and would like to tell us how you felt and what it meant to you, please email us. We would like to feature your comments on this page.
“I wish to express my heartfelt thanks to you for having shared with us your experience in household sustainable consumption and recycling. Your talk and demonstration on this very important aspect of conserving our environment to our women and some men at the ‘NCWO, Community, Recycling and ICT Centre’ on May 29 2004 was educational, thought-provoking and very well-received by us all. I am convinced that nothing comes easy. Only hard work, commitment to a cause, belief and enjoyment in what one does would show positive results in the end. You actually practice what you preach. We trust that your addiction, this good habit forming interest, will eventually be imitated by our society at large. We wish you the very best and give our support in your untiring effort towards caring for the environment.”

“Dear Don & Mylene, On behalf of all residents of Section 5, Petaling Jaya, I would like to thank you for conducting the talk on recycling of household waste at our association premises on Sunday, May 30, 2004.Your talk has inspired us to want to duplicate your efforts in our housing area as best we can.”

“We are writing this to thank both of you for your presence and efforts in educating the residents of Damansara Utama of the importance of recycling. The valuable lessons learnt in one half hours last Saturday morning 21 August have certainly inspired us to get moving with recycling household waste (which we now know is household resources) for a cleaner environment and in doing so, we may be able to raise funds for worthy causes. On behalf of DUROA, we would like to record our appreciaton for your outstanding presentation last Saturday and look forward inviting you in near future to witness the recycling efforts of DUROA. Thank you.”

“The UCARE committee of the Residents Assocation would like to thank you for participating in our Merdeka Street Party held in collaboration in conjunction with the Majlis Perbandaran Petaling Jaya’s (MPPJ) month-long calendar of events to celebrate the 47th anniversary of our nation’s birth. For the many people observed at your booth, we can conclude that the message that you brought to our committee from Penang must have been compelling and augurs well for your mission of bringing alive ‘Recycling’ in our community and country. As a result of your cajoling and persuasive style in bringing across your message, our committee is seriously considering launching our own recycling campaign. We would like to thank you and commend you for your untiring efforts in creating awareness and offering a workable solution to the bane of modern society i.e. domestic trash. We wish you greater success.”
President, Residents Association Section 5, Petaling Jaya
