Green is the New Black (GITNB) The Conscious Festival
3 November, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 4 November, 2018 @ 7:00 pm
The Conscious Festival by Green Is The New Black (GITNB) is back for its fourth year in Singapore this November. Held over two days at Parkroyal on Pickering, GITNB will continue to bring together the best of conscious brands, speakers and social entrepreneurs in a curated platform; from the free Mindful Marketplace to ticketed talks by DBS.
Join the Mindful Marketplace where visitors of all ages can enjoy shopping ethical local brands, eating consciously and viewing art installations themed around plastic waste. Meanwhile, the Transformational Talks by DBS are ticketed and will feature local and international speakers discussing how to Live (Breaking Limits, Breaking Free), Work (Purpose, Sustainability, Innovation), Consume (Going Zero) and Travel (The Unexplored) more mindfully and sustainably.
The festival will be both carbon neutral and zero waste, utilising food composting, banning single use plastics and disposables. GITNB has partnered with ES Power, Singapore’s first 100% carbon neutral energy retailer, to offset 105 metric tons of carbon dioxide by purchasing carbon credits that will go towards the construction of a new grid-connected hydropower plant in Quang Nam, Vietnam.
