In support of WWF-Malaysia, the Diploma in Logistics & Supply Chain Management students of Politeknik Seberang Perai (PSP), Penang, held an Earth Hour event alongside their lecturers. They focused on the call for green technology and built environmental awareness with their ”Politeknik Kasih” programme under the theme of “We care for the community, We love Malaysia”.

On 19 March 2013, the team of 69 students organised a video sharing session and logistics model exhibition for green technology which attracted over 600 visitors. Earth Hour videos were screened while the team promoted Earth Hour 2013 around the campus and collected a total of 1050 Earth Hour Live Green pledges.

Their efforts continued on 23 March 2013 as the team did communal work to create a clean environment by cleaning the campus surroundings. They also organised a Model Construction with Recycled Materials Competition, where the participating teams had to produce two office tools using recycled materials within two hours. Later that night, students gathered to switch off the lights for an hour while the judges deliberated on the tools created by the students, while a separate logo-designing contest was held.
