Tetra Pak believes that environmental conservation is the collective responsibility for all members of society, including businesses, communities and individuals. Every year, Tetra Pak actively engages with the communities where it operates in through local programmes and initiatives to raise environmental awareness, individual action and a greater sense of ownership toward environmental conservation. Listed below are local Singapore events for 2018.
Every year, we bring Tetra Pak School Recycling Programme (Singapore) winning schools and Little Green Dots -Train The Trainer partner schools’ representatives to visit a Tetra Pak partner recycling paper mill. The eye-opening trip provides the audience with an opportunity to witness the recycling process of Used Beverage Cartons (UBC).
An upcycling workshop using F&N market return cartons was conducted at MPSJ Malaysia. Participants who are teachers from local government schools picked up the UBC upcycling skills and in turn shared with their students in school. Everyone had great upcycling fun that day!
This year, People's Association organised the first Water-Venture Eco-Camp and supported by the National Environment Agency (NEA). Over 100 campers joined in our Eco-Coaster and Coin Purse Upcycling Workshops. A mini group competition was conducted at the end to encourage team work.
