Happy Zero-Waste Lunar New Year!

It's almost time for Chinese New Year, starting a year of the Wood Dragon, which symbolises power, strength and good fortune. As folks get busy preparing for a festival associated with abundance, we wanted to share some tips on innovative ways to perhaps celebrate a more sustainable Lunar New Year. We enlist the help of Khor Sue Yee, the Co-founder and Director of Zero Waste Malaysia, who will share some creative ideas for ushering in the Year of the Dragon with mindfulness and environmental responsibility. From eco-friendly decorations to sustainable feasting practices, Sue Yee will also delve into the traditions and customs that can be adapted to reduce waste, and minimise our ecological footprint during this festive season.
