Kuala Lumpur Launches Green Initiative

Kuala Lumpur is making strides to go green with the launch of I Greened KL, the first tourism environmental initiative program in Kuala Lumpur.

The initiative invites tourists and expats in Kuala Lumpur to plant trees in selected parks throughout the city. The program kicked off with the planting of 50 trees.

How to play: Tourists can register to become an I Green KL member at www.igreenedkl.com.my. After planting a tree, log on to the website to check the growth and development over a quarterly basis. The goal is to hit 30,000 trees by the end of this year, with an additional 30,000 trees to be planted annually until 2020.
