1 min read

FedEx Express (FedEx), a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) and one of the world’s largest express transportation companies, supported with upgrading and enhancing the local kindergarten facility in Pulau Carey, Selangor which serves the underprivileged indigenous communities around the area.

As part of the global FedEx Cares program, around 50 FedEx volunteers came together to produce ecobricks and rebuild a perimeter wall of the Tabika Kemas Kampung Orang Asli Sg Rambai, in collaboration with Treat Every Environment Special (TrEES), a sustainability-focused environmental organization, and the Department of Orang Asli Development (JAKOA).

“As children will use the facility every day, we hope that the use of ecobricks will help educate the next generation about the importance of sustainability”, says SC Chong, Managing Director, FedEx Express in Malaysia.

Leela Panikkar, Director of TrEES says, “Through environmental education and building of the sustainable ecobricks perimeter wall for the indigenous community, we hope to reconnect the urban community in supporting the underserved, whilst inculcating green habits to reduce our plastic footprint.”
