4th May 2018,
At the break of dawn on April 21, the sleepy housing community of Taman Ikan Emas on the outskirts of Cheras was abuzz with volunteers from Starbucks Malaysia and non-profit environmental organisation EcoKnights.
Celebrating the eighth Global Month of Service (GMoS), Starbucks Malaysia’s Green Outreach Programme welcomed EcoKnights on-board to establish a sustainable Community Edible Garden for the Perumahan Awam Rumah Panjang Ikan Emas community in the hopes of improving the livelihood of its residents. Spanning 30 meters in length and running along the Kerayong River, plans in the pipeline involve an area that opens up further once the community is better equipped to maintain a larger garden.
“Every year in April, Starbucks will embark on what we call Global Month of Service. This is an initiative by Starbucks and the main purpose is to express our commitment in uniting our partners, customers, friends and family, to positively impact communities,” said Starbucks Malaysia director of partner resources and compliance June Beh.
