Hada Labo’s ‘We Care For Nature 2022’ fundraising campaign in partnership with Watsons Malaysia and Malaysia Nature Society (MNS) was a success with RM60,000 raised from RM1 of the sales proceeds of every bottle of Hada Labo Hydrating Lotion sold in the month of October at Watsons nationwide.
With the fund raised, Hada Labo will be contributing to the planting of 1,000 forest trees on a two-hectare land in Hutan Simpan Sungai Besi Tambahan. Apart from ensuring sustainable environment, planting of the forest trees will also offer refuge and food for the wildlife.
I.S Shanmugaraj, the Executive Director of Malaysian Nature Society (MNS) said the country has moved forward with rapid development and construction which resulted in less green lungs in the city area. Hence, Hada Labo’s “We Care For Nature 2022” is important to rejuvenate the city by adding thousand more trees and helping generates latest green zone.
“As we are facing climate change issues, no doubt that tree planting is not only helping to provide a shelter and creating new home for the urban wildlife like bird, squirrel, and small mammal species but it is also the best remedy to fight climate change. Moreover, as the trees grow, the root system also will help to hold the ground and creates a stronghold to reduce the risk of erosion or landslide from happening in the vicinity. It is our hope that this two-pronged initiative not only helps to reduce climate change impact but prevents landslide in the future too.” added Shanmugaraj.
Rohto-Mentholatum (M) Sdn Bhd General Manager Lim Mei Yuen said Hada Labo hopes to plant more trees in the years to come in ensuring a sustainable environment for our future generation.
“Our focus now is to plant more trees in the Klang Valley as we’ve seen massive development taking place here. We will consider branching out to neighbouring vicinity with our tree planting effort in time to come,” she said.
“We believe that clean and green environment leads to good health. Hada Labo’s greening effort is not limited to just planting trees but also in advocating a clean environment through a call for recycling. Hada Labo customers can bring in any full-size skincare empty bottles in exchange for its lotion,” added Lim.
Lim would also like to thank the warm response from the public in making contribution to plant 1,000 forest trees through Hada Labo’s ‘We Care For Nature’ campaign.
