Recycling Campaign in the Office
"When you put the whole picture together, Recycling is the right thing to do." - Pam Shoemaker
Back in January till March 2022, our Team Members at Chuan Kok and RFS Hydraulics participated in an internal Recycling Campaign to kickstart our awareness on the carbon footprint we leave behind on our beloved planet. The Committee's mission was really simple; to raise awareness, to raise funds through recyclables and to educate team members on the different recyclable and non-recyclable materials. Ultimately, our vision was to kickstart our company's Corporate Social Responsibility gameplan for the long run.
Prior to this campaign, we realized that our company was really wasteful and the amount of waste generated was tremendous. We decided to set up a recycling booth with 3 separate bins to aid our Team Members to do their part for planet Earth. It was convenient for them to learn the art of recycling with these 3 bins and Team Members were really active in making the campaign a success by participating! In the end, Team Members were more educated in terms of recycling and this campaign definitely left a footprint in their minds to reduce waste and recycle in the future!
All in all, we managed to raise funds through our bulk of recyclables and we did reduce waste in our workspace. We also managed to change the mindset of our Team Members to Think Green and rewarded each and every Team Member with a goodie bag made out of recyclables. We hope to carry on this "going green mentality" in the future and make it a company culture in the long run!
