In support of Earth Hour on March 24, Compass One is dedicating this month to its recycling campaign.

The mall at Sengkang Square has launched a series of workshops and activities focused on enabling shoppers to recycle and upcycle.

From today to March 25, shoppers can get creative with the Upcycling workshops and transform T-shirts into shopping totes. At the DIY Soap workshops, they can create their own healthy and bio-degradable soap.

With every $30 spent, shoppers can participate in the above workshops and other activities on eco-friendly practices.

Participants are to bring their own old T-shirts, used lip sticks and figuring for the soap to participate in the workshops.

Have clothes that you no longer want? Donate them from March 5 to 11 and March 19 to 25. The first five shoppers to visit the booth daily get a mystery gift.
