Projects & Activities - Community Year 2012

Green Festival 2012

With more coffee shops under the Happy Toilet Programme, volunteers are roped in for the annual LOO@Heartlands campaign. The objective is to reach out to the public from all walks of life and remind them to adopt good restroom etiquette and act responsibly when using the public restroom facilities. Volunteers are requested to prepare tissue packets with message labels and station at the toilet entrance to distribute the packets to visitors. Tissue packets are also distributed to the public at the neighbourhood. Prior to the distribution, volunteers are also trained on inspecting the cleanliness and maintenance of the coffee shop toilet.

40 coffee shops islandwide are targeted for this year's campaign which was first launched in 2010. Those who are interested in volunteering at the coffee shops can sign up at the Singapore Cares (SG Cares) portal. RAS has been a close partner of the National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre (NVPC) within their SG Cares initiatives. Since 2010, about 60 volunteers have volunteered with some volunteering at the coffee shops more than once.


Zhenghua Primary School Open House 2012

The second YED was marked on 20th April with environment-related activities held at 4 satellite schools and RAS' involvement at one of the schools was Dunman High. Prior to the YED, in partnership with the Public Hygiene Council (PHC), a group of Year 6 students was trained on restroom inspections. Similar to the LOO@Heartlands campaign, a coffee shop was adopted by the students who would then distribute tissue packets with restroom educational messages to the visitors.

In the month of April, a series of activities were organised to mark Earth Day which falls on 22nd April. Chongzheng Primary School invited RAS to set up a booth at its premises during its Earth Day celebrations on 19th-20th April. The whole school was given information about our programmes and students were made aware of the consequences of dirty restrooms. Students had fun checking their hands for germs under the UV lights and also earnestly completed our RAS word jumble found in our brochure. It was a fun learning experience which truly commemorated the values and spirit of Earth Day.

Singapore World Water Day 2012 and Eco Day Out 2012 @ South West

For the second consecutive year, we were invited to organise educational activities at its booth at the Eco Day Out 2012 event jointly organised by the South West Community Development Council (SWCDC) and the National Environment Agency's South West Regional office. Our partner AirSanz (SEA) also supported the event by educating visitors about its cleaner and greener hand dryers. Eco Day Out is an annual event to highlight and educate the community on environmental issues like recycling and conservation. This includes celebrating the achievements of the South West district.

For the first time, our positive partnership with the PUB has evolved to joint community outreach with our participation in the Singapore World Water Day at the Marina Barrage. Apart from inviting visitors to take our survey results, our partner Qool Enviro also invited female visitors to embark on their first experience with the P-Mate, a device for women to urinate while standing. The World Water Day is held annually on 22 March as a means of focusing attention on the importance of water and advocating for the sustainable management of water resources. Activities in line with PUB's ABC Waters Programme were organised island wide at waterways and reservoirs.
