An Eventful Green Week
I think this week is a great week if you are looking at what to do to be green.

Earth Film Fest

First up is Earth Film Fest. 
My amazing friend, Michael Broadhead, has organised the world's first crowd-based film festival. It's happening this week. If you want to see the award-winning environmental movies, you will need to contact any of the hosts who are screening them in their homes. Just reach out to them on social media. What are the movies? They have a great line-up of them, and I highly recommend Cotton Road!

World Recycle Week

Secondly, H&M has launched it's world recycle week. If you are thinking of clearing out your wardrobe then H&M is one of the places where you can drop them off in return for a 15% voucher. For every kilogram collected, 2 euro cents will be donated to the Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund. There is a lot of controversy behind the campaign, and one   two of the major sticking points are that 1) the technology is not advanced to recycle all materials; and 2) the scheme still promotes consumption - well, you can ignore the voucher!

The third thing that's happening in this eventful green week is Green Drinks on COP21 Paris Agreement & Climate Change. Speakers from civil society will be sharing their thoughts on the agreement and what it means for Singapore. Speakers are Melissa Low of Energy Studies Institute (ESI) will explain key elements of the Paris Agreement, Pui Cuifen of Singapore Youth for Climate Action (SYCA) will share SYCA's observations of the journey to COP21, and Sandra Marichal of #up2degrees will tell us about her 13-day Antarctic Expedition alongside renowned polar explorer Robert Swan OBE and a movement she founded to raise awareness of climate change and global warming, and to inspire Singaporeans to take action.

Date: 21 April 2016 (Thurs)
Time: 7pm – 8.30pm
Venue: SingJazz Club, 101 Jalan Sultan, #02-00, The Sultan.
Admission: Free (contributions to society accepted)
RSVP: Via Facebook or email

Earth Day

Earth Day is also happening on the 22 April. Why not make small positive changes to your lifestyle? Go vegetarian once a week, carpool, or make that conscious decision not to buy things you don't really need. 

Repair Kopitiam
Want to get your mending fix this weekend? Pop by one of the Repair Kopitiam locations on Sunday between 9am to 3pm. Bring along your broken possessions and the lovely volunteers will teach you how it can be repaired. 

And yes, don't forget Fashion Revolution Day is happening on 24th April! Make sustainable fashion choices and always remember to question #whomademyclothes.
