- A Zero Waste Town -
We aspire to prove that sustainable development can go hand in hand with environmental conservation through proper environment management strategy. By bringing together various environmental projects and adopting a holistic view to this approach, we are confident in attaining our goal as a zero waste model town.
In view of this, the Sutera Good Earth Project was launched to spearhead the zero waste living concept within our neighbourhood.
- 5Rs' -
Rethink, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and Responsible, constitutes the major values that we adopt to further our cause in creating an eco-friendly green township.
- Sutera Good Earth Farm -
Sutera Good Earth Farm (SGEF) is an initiative to spread green consciousness by feeding our loved ones with healthy, naturally farmed, and pesticide-free vegetables. This community farm focuses on converting food waste from Sutera Mall, Sutera Square and the neighbourhood into composts for the farm and surrounding neighbouhood’s landscaping. Our residents join in to grow vegetables and fruits, and to reconnect with mother earth simultaneously.
- Kuru Kuru Shop -
Kuru Kuru represents “re-circulation” in Japanese. Kuru Kuru Shop serves as a meeting place for people to bring in their “unnecessary but still usable”
items, for others to take back and reuse. The concept originated from Kamikatsu, Japan, a “Zero Waste” town. Not only does the Kuru Kuru
Shop give these items new life and keep them in circulation, it also inculcates good Earth-friendly habits based on the principle of
"Good Habits are Better than a Carefree Life".
- EDUCATION AND OUTREACHING PROGRAMS -
Our Green Ambassadors regularly engage residents and associates to instil the green concept through various talks and workshops. We maintain strong ties with organisations such as Kiwanis CareHeart Centre (KCHC), AIESEC of UTM, Pusat Kebajikan Kalvari (PKK), Hsing Ma Si Buddhist Education Centre, NGOs and educational institutions to support and co-organise green events for the community.
A strategic partnership with KCHC was formed to promote the use of food waste compost and liquid fertiliser in the Centre. Currently, food waste composts and liquid fertiliser are used to replace chemical agents as natural fertilisers at the Centre’s vegetable farm.
Various educational talks and workshops on green lifestyle were held to raise public awareness on practising of 5Rs’ principle in order to create a greener and healthier living environment for our future generations. Public exhibitions and carnival, such as the EM & Me exhibition in 2012, Good Earth Exhibition in 2014, Good Earth Carnival 2016, EM & ME exhibition 2.0 and Good Earth Exhibition 2019 were held in Sutera Mall to achieve this objective.
