Singapore throws away more than 7 million tonnes of solid waste every year, adding to the size of the island-nation’s carbon footprint. Semakau Landfill, Singapore’s last standing landfill, will run out of space by 2035 if we don’t band together to take action. On 12 January, the Ministry for the Environment & Water Resources announced that 2019 will be designated the Year Towards Zero Waste for Singapore.
EcoBank 2019 is back for the fourth time and in collaboration with Eco-Business, we hope to make this the best one yet! We seek to engage and educate our internal and external stakeholders as well as the public to break the typical ‘take-make-consume and waste’ cycle and adopt a more sustainable lifestyle.
From 8 to 28 January, please drop your donations of toys, clothes, books, electronics, household appliances, art décor items, and accessories that are in good condition at 7 collection points at CDL’s owned or/and managed properties. Items will be curated and sold at the EcoBank Bazaar, with proceeds going to Arc Children’s Centre in aid of children with cancer or life-threatening illnesses. Unsold goods will be donated to the Embodhi Foundation to benefit low-income women in Sri Lanka, India and Vietnam.
We look forward to your continued support and contributions for a cleaner, more caring and sustainable Singapore! More information can be found here.
