Celebrating World Environment Month: How You Can Make a Difference

June is World Environment Month and Singapore has been one of the key leaders to advocate the importance of sustainability and environmental conservation. Find out how you, as an individual Singaporean, can help to make a difference for yourself, your country and our Mother Earth.

 

June is a month dedicated to raising awareness about environmental issues and promoting actions to protect our planet. With significant days like World Environment Day on June 5th, World Ocean Day on June 8th, World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought on June 17th, and World Rainforest Day on June 22nd, it’s time for us to reflect on our impact on the Earth and take steps towards a more sustainable future. 

Singapore, known as the Garden City, has long been a leader in urban greening and sustainability. Initiatives such as the Singapore Green Plan 2030 and the extensive network of parks and green spaces showcase the city-state's commitment to environmental conservation.

As an island nation, Singapore has a deep connection to the ocean. The city-state is committed to marine conservation through initiatives like the Sisters’ Islands Marine Park, which protects marine biodiversity and promotes sustainable practices. The city-state's commitment to water sustainability is evident in initiatives like the NEWater program, which recycles treated wastewater for potable use.
At Good Knight®, we are proud to support these initiatives as well and contribute to a healthier planet.

 

Our Commitment to Sustainability

As a brand that values sustainability and environmental responsibility, Good Knight mattress recognizes the impact our choices have on the planet. Our commitment to using 100% natural latex, collaborating with the SEAQUAL initiative, and designing a customisable, layer-changeable mattress, is part of our broader effort to reduce our ecological footprint and support sustainable practices.

 

“The longer you keep your mattress in your bedroom, the better it is for the planet.”

 

How You Can Make a Difference

In honour of World Environment Month, we encourage you to take actions that support environmental conservation. Here are some ways you can contribute:

 

  • Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
  • Minimise waste by adopting the three R's in your daily life. Choose products with minimal packaging and recycle whenever possible.

     

  • Conserve Water and Energy
  • Implement water-saving practices and reduce energy consumption at home. Simple actions like fixing leaks and using energy-efficient appliances can make a big difference.

  • Educate Yourself and Others
  • Stay informed about environmental issues and share your knowledge with friends and family. Advocacy and awareness are powerful tools for change.

     

  • Participate in Local Initiatives
  • Join local environmental initiatives and volunteer for conservation projects. In Singapore, you can participate in tree planting campaigns, coastal clean-ups, and other green activities.

  • Support Sustainable Brands
  • Choose brands that prioritize sustainability and environmentally friendly practices. Your purchasing decisions can make a significant impact.

     

    If you wonder where to start, you might consider starting from the place you spend most of your life in – your bedroom. Typically, the mattress in your bedroom will only last 5-7 years, and it’s a hassle to replace it since it costs time, money and creates a whole bunch of waste. Not forgetting the frequent replacement is detrimental to the environment!

    Consider Good Knight’s Athena Mattress – a customisable 3-layer 100% Natural Latex Mattress. No synthetic latex blends, polyurethane foam, chemical adhesives, fire retardants or fiberglass. Sleeping cool at night. 7-zone pressure relief. 

    Best of all, you can customise your own firmness level based on your sleeping position and comfort. Never change your mattress. Just change the layers.
