Handy Manny Gets Handy With The Earth!


Previously, I wrote about how we can show our support for the environment through our everyday habits and “Earth Hour” campaign. Not only that – I also mentioned about raising the awareness on environmental sustainability in our young kids.


Yes, building our kids’ early awareness is important. Yes, we also know that engaging them in environmental campaigns and activities do help *smile*.



So, we have several environmental campaigns like Earth Hour and World Environment Day. Coming our way on 22 April 2010 will be the 40th “Earth Day” – a day designed to inspire awareness and appreciation for the Earth’s environment, with Earth Day activities participated by more than 1 billion people in the world.


On this Earth Day, you can engage your kids to show their love for Mother Earth in a FUN way!


Let your kids learn the environmental message through these fun activities with your family on this Earth Day:

1) Where possible, walk or bike to your nearby destination. Reduce car driving and reduce the undesirable carbon monoxides which will harm the earth.

2) Enjoy a little picnic, using non-disposal utensils. Recycle and keep our environment clean.

3) Start a new plant life. Treasure the greatness of Mother Earth as the plant grows and blooms.

4) Play friendly penalty games or quizzes with your young ones to bring across to them the significance of :

Saving energy – by turning off lights or electricity when not in use

Recycling – get hands-on in creative art activities with recyclable items like bottles, cans and paper boxes.

Saving water – by turning off water when brushing teeth and applying soap during bath.

Go Green Episode 3


A small part of my job requires me to think about environmental sustainability and also as part of a team that leads in sustaining green or eco office for my organisation.


ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY seems such a “IN” word now.  However, how many actually appreciate its meaning and significance? We are aware of the damages caused by both natural and anthropogenic factors on our environment.  Perhaps, many still could not feel the direct impact of our actions on our future generations.


All of us could do our part for our eco-system and future generation either at work or in our everyday lives by reducing our carbon footprints and working towards environmental sustainability - ultimately to meet the needs of the present generation without compromising the needs of our future generations to meet their needs.




Start by being a little more conscious, cultivating ”green” habits, and building our sense of responsibilities towards the environment.  Do not forget our little ones too in sharing with them the importance. They deserve to be aware and do their parts early in sustaining the environment that they and their future generations will co-exist in.
