or how to #GoHazeFree from your sofa
On Tuesday, we had our October Facebook jam. Thank you to all the volunteers who showed up!
That evening was very empowering! We reached out to new eateries and followed-up with the ones we reached out to during the last session.
Many eateries in Singapore use unsustainable palm oil. What’s more, most eateries are unaware their cooking oil may be causing the haze. That’s why PM Haze #GoHazeFree campaign aims to reach out and encourage Singaporean eateries to switch to haze-free cooking oil.
However, in our busy Singaporean society, not everyone has the capacity to attend our eatery outreach events. Thus we created the Facebook jam events to allow everyone to lend a hand. Our Facebook outreach consists of sending Facebook messages to eateries to ask them about the cooking oil they use and encouraging them to consider switching to haze-free palm oil. This jams also allow us to enjoy the company of other haze fighters and motivate each other. What’s more, it is a great occasion to have a haze free meal together!
Volunteering with PM haze is rewarding!I enjoy the Facebook jam eateries outreach of PM haze. For me, it’s a great way to volunteer as we are with inspiring people gathered for a good cause: the fight against the haze!Also, we aren’t alone and clear guidelines are given. Together, we can change many things!So, don’t hesitate come with your friends and join the PM haze family!
