Celebrate a Green Eco Christmas

Celebrate a Green Eco Christmas

M1 Limited (M1), one of Singapore's leading Mobile Network Operators, today announced an Eco-friendly Christmas Carnival. With the launch of the carnival, customers can go green with their festive celebrations by participating in an exciting lineup of sustainable initiatives such as M1's Trade-Up Bazaar, environmentally friendly giveaways and a unique Pet Pebble painting activity.

As part of their Eco-friendly Christmas Carnival, M1 allows customers to customise pet pebbles [above] in stores and adopt those lovingly painted by BSS beneficiaries. All proceeds from the pet pebble adoption will go towards Beyond Social Services.

Be Rewarded For Reducing Waste These Holidays

From 3 Dec to 9 Dec, M1 customers can visit M1's flagship store at Peranakan Place to take part in M1's Trade-Up Bazaar. Through this, M1 is encouraging customers to trade in their old devices in store with attractive prices for their old devices to reduce e-waste disposal. These old devices will receive a new lease of life by being repurposed for new devices or being sent to recycling partners where their materials can help support sustainable practices. All customers with eligible trade-in devices can join this program.

To further minimise waste during the gifting season, customers are welcome to visit the store to claim their complimentary plantable Christmas gift card and eco-friendly wrapping paper. This plantable gift card is made up of biodegradable eco-paper embedded with seeds. When the card is planted in a pot of soil, the paper composts away, giving new life to plants with zero waste.

Make A Difference In The Community With M1

"Integrating responsible practices into our operations is important as we grow our customer base, expand our network and transform our products and services. In line with Keppel's Vision 2030 to sharpen focus on providing solutions for sustainable urbanisation, we are always looking for new ways to make a positive impact on our community and minimise our environmental footprint. Through our Christmas Carnival, we also hope to engage our customers and educate them on sustainable practices in a fun way as the year comes to a close," said Mr Manjot Singh Mann, Chief Executive Officer, M1.

To champion this, M1 has organised family-friendly activities such as Pet Pebble painting. Anyone who signs up or recontracts their M1 mobile plans at any M1 Shop or via the e-store from now until 31 December will receive a complimentary Pet Pebble kit while stocks last. They can decorate and customise their personalised Pet Pebble with a variety of art materials in store or in their own time and share their creation on Instagram to stand a chance to win attractive prizes in our Pet Pebble competition.

Members of the public can also "adopt" a Pet Pebble painted by the children and volunteers from a local charity, Beyond Social Services (BSS). Donations can be made directly to BSS via a QR code and all proceeds from Pet Pebble adoption will go towards them. Play a part to shape our community this holiday season with M1's Eco-Christmas Carnival.
