Managing Environmental Impact
Social Giving & Engagement
Green Is The New Black is a lifestyle media platform which has two goals - firstly helping individuals to live more consciously, and secondly to connect them to responsible brands by amplifying their sustainability initiatives. They run Asia's first Conscious Festivals in both Singapore and Hong Kong, having gathered more than 15,000 people. And they work closely with hotels, restaurants, and large-scale events to greener their operations and support their sustainability journeys.
They are an Asian-based collective on a mission to make sustainability mainstream, accessible and sexy through #LittleGreenSteps – a campaign that uses the codes of pop culture to convert the masses and then encourages them to embrace a series of small steps that yield big change. These not-too-difficult and easy-on-the-wallet strategies are easily adopted by individuals and organizations looking to live more consciously one #LittleGreenStep at a time.
> Conscious Festivals
They have been running our Conscious Festivals annually in Singapore since 2015 and Hong Kong since 2017. This year will be their 5th year anniversary. These events are a combination of marketplaces, talks, workshops - bringing together individuals and businesses to be the catalyst for change.
