Join the zero waste revolution!

Singapore throws away more than 7 million tonnes of solid waste every year, adding to the size of the island-nation’s carbon footprint.

With 2019 designated the Year of Zero Waste, do your part to accelerate Singapore’s vision of becoming a zero waste nation. Give your pre-loved goods a new lease of life while also doing good for charity with EcoBank—an annual zero-waste initiative by City Developments Limited and Eco-Business.

Last year, EcoBank 2018 collected 17.5 tonnes of used goods that were then sorted and sold, saving some 7,000 tonnes of carbon emissions. This year, the fourth edition of Ecobank is continuing the mission of breaking the typical ‘take-make-consume and waste’ cycle and promoting a more sustainable lifestyle among Singaporeans.

From 8 January to 1 February, EcoBank is welcoming donations of toys, clothes, books, electronics, household appliances, art, and accessories that are in good, resaleable condition at 7 drop-off points across Singapore.

Items will be curated and sold at the EcoBank Bazaar, with the proceeds going to Arc Children’s Centre to aid children with cancer or other life-threatening illnesses. Unsold goods will be donated to the Embodhi Foundation to benefit low-income women in Sri Lanka, India and Vietnam.

Visit the EcoBank website or Facebook page to stay up-to-date on the exciting programme in store at the EcoBank Bazaar 2019, Singapore’s biggest sustainable fashion event, or lend a hand as an EcoBank volunteer here. Find out how else you can contribute to EcoBank by reading the EcoBank Communications Pack.

The annual EcoBank initiative includes Fashion 3R, a programme by City Developments Limited, Eco-Business, The Fashion Pulpit and the Raffles College of Higher Education to spread awareness about sustainable fashion and the true cost of consumption.
