Go Green, pledge to bring your own bag for World Environment Day!

Go Green, pledge to bring your own bag for World Environment Day! Did you know that the amount of petroleum used to make 1 plastic bag could drive a car for about 11 metres? Take a small step towards a greener lifestyle by reducing the use of plastic bags and bringing your own bag! You could eliminate the need for over 20,000 plastic bags in your lifetime.

If you can’t wait to get your hands on one, get a City Square Mall eco-shopping bag at just $1 each! Available in blue, white, yellow or green at the L2 Customer Service Counter.

Save the environment, 1 bag at a time.

Orange Ribbon Walk 2012

The Orange Ribbon Celebrations (ORC) is a signature event in July promoting racial and religious harmony.

The Orange Ribbon symbolises, kinship, harmony and brotherhood. ORC is spearheaded by OnePeople.sg (OPSG) in partnership with the Community Development Councils, Self-Help Groups, People’s Association, Ministry of Community Development, Youth and Sports and Ministry of Education.

This year, OPSG and its partners will be organising the Orange Ribbon Walk (ORW) to launch the month-long Celebrations.

The theme for this year’s Celebrations, “Regardless of Race, Language or Religion” serves as a rallying call to ingrain values of respect, understanding and trust in our society.
