LET'S MAKE SINGAPORE OUR GARDEN!
To commemorate Singapore's Jubilee celebration, we have launched the "Help Plant 50 Trees" initiative with a NEW Limited Edition Soft Hand Kind Hearts Hand Cream. Through the sales of this hand cream, we target to raise $10,000 for the Garden City Fund to contribute to the planting of 50 trees.
The 50 native trees will be planted at the Punggol Promenade Nature Walk under NParks' CG SG50 Mass Tree Planting project. As part of its SG50 activities, NParks plans to involve the community in the planting of 5,000 trees at 50 sites across the island from September to November 2015.
Protecting Our Planet
Protecting the planet has always been a key area of focus for us, and even more so today when climate change is posing a fundamental threat to the places, species and people's livelihoods. We are delighted to be part of the meaningful initiative to make Singapore and our planet greener.
Besides adding to the lush landscape of the nation, trees also help increase biodiversity, prevent soil erosion and reduce urban heat-up. In addition, trees also improve the quality of air by removing carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen.
HOW CAN I HELP
You can help us reach our S$10,000 target by purchasing the NEW Limited Edition Soft Hands Kind Heart hand cream or any of the Top 10 Beauty Star products from 3 June to 19 August 2015.
