To try something new this year, we will be having our first ever Ecofest in August! In hopes of raising awareness about the environment, we will be collaborating with a few other companies to make Ecofest come to life! 😁
So what exactly is Ecofest?
Ecofest will be a 2-day event on 24th and 25th August hosted by REFASH over at TRIO Mall from 12 pm-6 pm! Ecofest 2019 will be a collaboration with 3 companies to provide a one-stop-shop for those of you who want to be environmentally friendly. 💯👌
Purpose of Ecofest
REFASH wants to show our green efforts in wanting to join hands with other eco brands to push for sustainable living awareness and focus not only on fashion, which is primarily what REFASH is trying to achieve. We are also hoping to share the exposure to the smaller eco brands to help them achieve their specific goals and aims for their company.
Of course, coming hand in hand with the other companies, we would also like to have more people to be more conscious in regards to their daily habits and ultimately being able to eliminate the practice of a linear economy and move towards being a circular economy to reduce waste! ♻
Companies participating in Ecofest
The Zero Ways Pte Ltd is a lifestyle store, movement and an educator. Their mission is to normalize environmental and social consciousness not only nationally but also globally through the practice of the Circular economy. 💯 Love the fact that they are not only selling products to help people play a part in saving the environment, but to also educate people to be more aware of the environment and what they can do to help!
Cloversoft, by Alps Group, is committed to create and produce safe and eco-friendly daily consumables at affordable prices so that everyone can experience this change. Did you know that all the wipes in the markets are made from plastic which are also harmful to not just our skin but our environment??? 😱
BloomBack is a Lifestyle and Gift Concept shop that re-purposes old flowers from weddings and event, package them into little bouquets to bless cancer patients and lonely old folks. 💐🌺 On top of their online shop, BloomBack also provides workshops to provide the general public with a hands-on experience arranging their own floral arrangement. 🙌
