Shopping complex sets out to make national flag out of mineral bottle

WANT to help make a national flag out of mineral bottles?

Just drop your emty 1.5 liter mineral water bottles at the special counter set up at the EU3 Shopping Complex in Jalan Loke Yew.

The complex’s senior manager, Jayantha Rajendra, said they aim to collect 15,000 of the 1.5 litre bottles and 2,000 of the 500 millilitre bottles.

The first 1,000 donors with 42 mineral water bottles will each receive a Merdeka Day Celebration car sticker and a can of Milo drink.

 The collection, which started yesterday, will go on until the end of next month.

 “We call this “The Jalur Gemilang” project in conjunction with the 42nd National Day celebration in August,” he said.

“It is to increase the awareness of recycled products and to encourage the implementation of recycling throughout the country.”

The project, jointly organized by Malaysian Volunteer Fire and Rescue Association, is also looking for 150 volunteers.

“Presently, we have 100 volunteers but we need more people to help us collect bottles and arrange them,” said its president K.Balasupramaniam.

The team aims to make a 26.4 by 13.2 metre flag with each bottle being filled with coloured paper.

The flag, which is estimated to weigh about 2,000 kilogrammes, will be hung at the complex concourse area in August.

 “We hope to complete the flag by Aug 6,” he said.

The attempt will be recorded in the Malaysia Book of Records under the Human Achievement category.

Its director Danny Ooi said the flag will also be submitted to the World Book Of Records.
