Club flies the flag for green causes. In celebration of its 12th anniversary, ONE°15 Marina Sentosa Cove dedicated 8 September to doing its part for the environment. Members and business partners attended an eco-themed family carnival, where they learnt how to reduce, reuse and recycle courtesy of upcycling workshops and engaging activities.
Eco-related games taught visitors about the items that can be recycled, and those that cannot. Another educational booth centred on the emergence of plant-based meat dishes and introduced the Impossible menu, which features at LATITUDE Bistro. Impossible Meat smells, handles, cooks and tastes just like real meat, but is kinder on the environment as cultivating plants results in a lower carbon footprint compared to producing meat and dairy products from animals.
A number of eco-friendly vendors were also in attendance, offering various sustainable products ranging from daily necessities to apparel. Adding to the carnival feel were free popcorn, balloon sculpting sessions and a 10m inflatable obstacle course in the pool for the little ones.
To keep up its efforts in cultivating the ONE°15 Marina – Seakeepers Asia Coral Garden project, the Club also invited Members and partners to become sponsors in the Plant-A-Coral Today (PACT) initiative. Marina Technology & Construction signed up to be a part of the project, which saw divers from NUS’ Tropical Marine Science Institute also play their part by planting corals at the marina.
Backed by a team of coral researchers from NUS’ Tropical Marine Science Institute, ONE°15 Marina Sentosa Cove has a long-term vision to build a thriving marine biosystem within its waters. The Club also hopes to eventually develop it as an educational site where students can learn about marine biodiversity.
