BFM speaks to S Mageswari, the honorary secretary of Sahabat Alam Malaysia, about the impacts of sand mining in Malaysia.

Sand – it’s the tiny grains that crunch under our feet as we walk on the beach. It’s in our buildings and roads. And it’s a primary raw material in making the glass screens and the silicon chips in your smartphone. But did you know the world is running out of sand?
