F&N’s outreach programme to encourage recycling includes its support of Tzu Chi Foundation’s recycling mission for the community. Tzu Chi Singapore established its first recycling point in Jurong East in 1999. Today, there are 39 community recycling points island-wide and an Eco-Awareness Centre, where volunteers young and old work together tirelessly to protect the environment. F&N also supports the foundation’s annual Eco Charity Fair which was held on 27 and 28 January this year.
Tzu Chi Foundation has become a mecca of knowledge about environmental protection for communities, schools and enterprises to embrace recycling and conservation. Since November 2017 F&N’s staff have been volunteering their time every second Sunday each month to rally around the company’s support of the Tzu Chi Recycling day. From 9am to noon, the 20 staff volunteers join members of the community to further the cause of recycling to protect Mother Nature.
