Located in Malay bay and known as the Pearl of Orient, Penang offers attractive spots for historical buildings. In recent years, due to wastewater from industrial plants, landfills, as well as waste from restaurants and residential areas, rivers and coasts have been severely polluted causing local residents and Penang State Government to be alerted by the deterioration of this touristic scenery.

Last August 8th, “One Million Apologies for Mother Earth" event was celebrated by throwing one million EM™ mudballs onto the seafront of Gurney Drive. Penang Government officials, schools, welfare and other public facilities representatives participated in this event. 1.2 million EM™ mudballs, surpassing the number planned, were successfully made in just over two months and ready to throw. More than 18,000 people took part in throwing EM™ mudballs into the coast and rivers. Professor Teruo Higa, along with the Chief Minister of the State of Penang and government officials declared August 8th “World EM™ Mudball Day” showing the significance of this movement.
