We conserve our environment through reuse, recycling and education.

 

In 2016, Singapore generated more than 150,000 tonnes of textile and leather waste, but only 7% of such waste was recycled. Our aim is to provide free textile recycling services to households and organisations in Singapore and to promote awareness of the 3Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) through education, with a focus on engaging youths in schools.

 According to the Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources, we send about 200,000 tonnes of waste and all incinerated ash to Semakau Landfill each year. At this rate, it will run out of space by around year 2035. We need to look for more sustainable solutions to handle our waste.

Recycling events in school

As a CSR initiative, we will conduct recycling events in school for free. We believe in imparting knowledge of the 3Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) to the young to build the culture of recycling.  In Japan and Taiwan, recycling is heavily emphasized in their education systems; planting the seeds in kindergarten helps to breed green habits.
