Dear <<First name>>,

Encouraging Local Restaurants and Eateries to Embrace Sustainability

At the recent Climate Action Carnival, PM Haze together with three local non-profits launched a new initiative, "Makan SG", to encourage the F&B industry in Singapore to embrace sustainability and guide the consumption habits of the general public.

Through Makan SG, the Centre for a Responsible Future (CRF), People’s Movement to Stop Haze (PM Haze), Plastic-Lite Singapore, and Zero Waste SG hope to address five key areas:

  • Using food ingredients that have a low environmental footprint,
  • Sourcing palm-based cooking oil sustainably,
  • Reducing and managing waste effectively,
  • Reducing and eliminating the use of disposable plastics, 
  • Conserving energy.
Addressing these key issues will help restaurants and eateries to become environmentally sustainable. Read More>>
Voice Your Concerns
We are recruiting participants for a second Focus Group Discussion (FGD) on Haze for Parents with Young Kids on 1 July (Sunday)! The objective of the FGD is to identify effective messaging that connects the dots between haze, palm oil and our consumption. We are looking for moms and dads of young kids of 15 years old and below. Please follow the link to choose a convenient slot. We are also giving $10 NTUC voucher in appreciation of your time and effort.

Updates on Community Development Project

Last May, PM Haze completed our first canal blocking project in Indonesia in collaboration with WALHI Riau, and the Sungai Tohor community. During a recent trip back, we happily found that the community we worked with has formed a 16-member Co-op, EKA (Ekonomi Kreatif Andalan), since December last year. In addition to growing sago, EKA is working hard exploring farming, handicraft making and t-shirt printing to diversify their livelihood. 

Our community development manager Lastrina went back to the canal block we supported last year to check on its condition. For the remaining of the year, we will monitor the effectiveness of canal blocks on peatland restoration. Watch this space for future updates!
