World Environment Day – 5 June – what are you planning?

Since tomorrow is World Environment Day, so what are you planning to do to promote green?

Perhaps joining Eco Action Day activitiy. Eco Action Day is an annual energy saving campaign held in Singapore to encourage office participation nationwide, in commemoration of World Environment Day on 5th June.

Perhaps we should reduce, reuse and recycle and cut down electrical usage as much as we can. Or take public transport. I always take public transport or walk to the destination. I do not smoke too as smoking pollutes the air and the production of the cigarettes involves in chopping down many trees.

Or if you want to use your musical talents, you can contribute your skills or write a beautiful song to take part in NEA Eco Music Challenge 2012 to promote your love to save the environment as well as stand a chance to win wonderful prizes. Feel free to visit http://www.nea.ecomusic.sg for more information.

Whether you are in primary, secondary or of any ages, free feel to take part if you have wonderful composition to share with everybody. There’s also talents wanted section whereby singers or musicians are needed for making the song even better.

Nathan Hartono is the ambassador for this year’s NEA Eco Music Challenge 2012. Here’s his song – WE CHANGE. Hope you enjoy it.

Just in case if you are running out of ideas of writing a song, feel free to visit my previous blog posts for inspiration. Or watch Captain Planet cartoons. Haha.

I have listened all the songs in this CD and it’s great. While listening to all the songs, I could feel how much hardwork the finalists, Toh Yi Fan and Shawn Tok had put in to write out songs on environment. It is not easy to write songs.

I do quite like Shawn Tok’s song 拯救世界, Lee Feng Heng’s World Without Fences and Julian Kwok’s Love for the Planet Earth. Nice lyrics and tune, great music and it’s about the environment which I like very much. I will give a 4 out of 5 stars for the great music in the CD.

If you are interested to get those songs, you can purchase the album @ $9.90 or $0.99/song online @ http://nea.ecomusic.sg/jukebox/ or go to NEA Customer Service Centre at Environment Building at Scotts Road (near Newton MRT area).

All proceeds of the sale of the songs & album will go to Nature Society Singapore to support the appreciation of our unique bio-diversity at Semakau Landfill.
