Environmentalism Is Not Just For One Hour

Earth Hour was held on every year’s March 24th. This year, our event’s topic is“opening up our post-60s lifestyles.”Kaifa has actively responded to this event and turned off the lights for an hour at the HQ's dormitory. Whilst the lights were off, radios were used to promote the benefits of energy-saving lifestyles to employees.
The company started off the night of the event by broadcasting the Earth Hour to employees and telling them about the“turning lights off for an hour”initiative. The apartment block turned off all the lights promptly at half past eight in the evening. Whilst the lights were off, radios were used to promote the benefits of energy-saving lifestyles to employees. The employees were told that this turning off of the lights is just a gesture and we all have a responsibility to make small contributions to environmental protection and energy conservation through small changes in our daily routines.

In addition to turning off lights for Earth Hour, what else can we do?
1. Reduce use of plastics. Bring a bag-for-life when you go shopping. Do not use plastic straws, cut down on the use of plastic packaging, and don’t use washing products that contain harmful components such as polyethylene.
2. Green Consumption. Purchase environment protection certified products, do excessively indulge in consumerism, do not order too much food when you go to a restaurant and reject wild products.
3. Reduce your use of everyday disposable products. Take a cup with you when you go out, use environmentally friendly tableware at home, carry a handkerchief with you at all times, and bring your own slippers and toiletries when traveling.
4. Recycle Resources. Reduce and classify waste, recycle where possible, donate old objects that you don’t use, and replace old energy inefficient electrical products with new ones.
5. Green Travel. Choose to walk or cycle for short distance journeys, always give priority to public transport when planning your journey, purchase a low-carbon vehicle, and travel by train when you go traveling.

The“Clear Your Plate”Campaign Starts With Me!
Saving is a traditional Chinese virtue, and now with the increasing popularity of the“clear your plate” event, more and more employees are now personally invested in the campaign. Kaifa Suzhou Trade Union launched its“clear your plate”public welfare event in the East and West parks from 4th to 12th of September.
Employees crowded together as they strove to be the first to sign the“clear your plate”pledge at the event site. They then took group photos at the event, posted them to their WeChat Moments, and swore that they would take practical daily action and insist on a “clear your plate” punch card to track their progress as they strove to true practitioners. After the event had drawn to a close, the employees shared and liked the event’s WeChat articles to help spread the word.
The classification of garbage is a new fashion that is sweeping the nation and this year’s“clear your plate”event added an interesting garbage classification question and answer session to the event’s proceedings that piqued the curiosity of all in attendance. The employees prepared garbage sorting props, and then all drew a card and put it in the mini trash bin. If an employee made an error in their classification, the on-site staff would then explain their error.
The “clear your plate”campaign starts with me! Employees successively declared that they would take practical action and promise to become role models for others looking to take part in the event and help to further publicize the campaign. They would further promise to be the pride of the campaign and to transform their tongues from the loudspeakers of idle gossip to the torch bearers of civilization.
