Seven Tzu Chi’s Eco points have resumed operations. Let’s do our part to safeguard our environment and leave a clean planet for generations to come.
On the third Sunday of each month, Tzu Chi conducts eco activities at about seven eco points in various neighbourhoods island-wide. Besides sorting recyclables, their volunteers also share with residents ways to make environmental protection part of their daily lives.
Tzu Chi’s Singapore Environmental Sustainability Day
Every third Sunday of the month is Tzu Chi Environmental Sustainability Day. In close to 40 neighbourhoods across the island, Tzu Chi has garnered the support of various Residents’ Committees, to transform the void decks of HDB blocks, communal pavilions, activity areas, etc. into temporary eco points. Residents living nearby are invited to bring their recyclable items for sorting and recycling on Environmental Sustainability Day. They are also encouraged to bring their children along to learn about environmental protection.
