ION Orchard launched its “LOVE OUR WORLD” campaign

image036

A variety of tours, events and workshops on the theme of sustainability will be the order of the day at ION Orchard this June and July. As part of the mall’s vision to encourage a more sustainable way of living, ION Orchard today launched its “LOVE OUR WORLD” campaign, which aims to educate shoppers on climate change and promote green efforts such as reduce, reuse, and recycle as well as encourage shoppers to embark on a sustainable journey.

Key highlights of the campaign include a Sustainability Trail, where participants can take part in store workshops and tours organised by participating brands including Bynd Artisan, L’OCCITANE and Nespresso. Wellness events such as sunrise urban yoga sessions by lululemon at outdoor L1 ION2, at the cross-junction of Orchard Road and Paterson Road will present a unique experience and photo opportunities. Other highlights to get shoppers to go green include different spending promotions and a chance to earn 2X Green Points rewards during the Hari Raya Haji weekend from 8 to 11 July 2022.

The “LOVE OUR WORLD” campaign is part of the Singapore Tourism Board’s (STB) island-wide Wellness Festival Singapore which will be held from 3 to 12 June 2022.

Join ION Orchard, lululemon and Warrior Studios for an energising outdoor Warrior HIIT yoga class or a calming Mellow Flow yoga class to ease into your relaxing weekend! Classes will be held at 8.30am on both Saturday, 4 June 2022 and Sunday, 5 June 2022 (the sessions will be led by Warrior Studios), and participants will be able to head to lululemon anytime from 4 to 9 June 2022 (Saturday to Thursday) to enjoy in-store surprises!

 

In conjunction with the Cancer Survivor Month this June, ION Orchard is also working with Breast Cancer Foundation (BCF) to present ‘Ahead of Time’ – a photo exhibition of 25 breast cancer survivors with their children. Photographed by nine notable photographers including Russel Wong, Mark Law and Lee Jen, the exhibit prints are printed on sustainable fine art paper made from 100% cotton rags with responsibly sourced frames that are recyclable.

 

SUSTAINABILITY TRAIL

Take part in any of the Sustainability Trail activities below to earn up to a maximum of 10 Green Points, per member, per month! Collect the Sustainability Trail Card at any participating stores* or L4 Concierge Counter to start collecting your eco stamps. Present the eco-stamped card at L4 Concierge Counter on the same activity day to exchange for Green Points. Limited to the first 1,000 redemptions monthly.

 

From 3 to 12 June 2022, shoppers at ION Orchard can visit the educational panels at B4 ION Station and understand the importance of recycling right, how to make a change, and be encouraged to learn more about eco crisis and the need for sustainable actions. There will also be a display of four recycling bins decorated by local personalities such as, Bernadette Belle, Tiffany Lovage, Xenia Tan and Zhang Jia En, who will be leaving their eco-mark in exclusively designed art-of-recycling bins.

Shoppers may also play their part by bringing a minimum of three recyclable items of either paper, plastic, glass or fabric materials to the B4 ION Station and get an eco stamp to qualify for five Green Points. Items submitted are subjected to checks before an eco-stamp is awarded.

To raise awareness for upcycling and to contribute to the society, ION Orchard is also partnering with ECO@Metta, a programme by Metta Welfare Association, to upcycle collected preloved fabrics or clothes. Shoppers may purchase Metta’s upcycled products handcrafted by youths with special needs, on site via QR codes. ECO@Metta is part of Metta’s Youth Employment Support, which actively seeks to increase employment opportunities for Metta School graduates who have mild intellectual disability or autism.

Be eco-conscious and get rewarded with Green Points

From 3 June to 31 July 2022 (excluding 8 to 11 July), shoppers will also get rewarded when they make a sustainable choice at ION Orchard. They can qualify for up to nine Green Points throughout the campaign period by either using their own shopping bags, mugs, and food containers or when they purchase from “green” collections or sustainable items.
