Environmental superstar, Lianhe Zaobao (10 Aug) Synopsis: 18-year-old Shen Suhui is passionate about environmental causes. The NP student regularly organises activities in school to increase awareness of environmental protection. Suhui has even won several awards for her efforts.
She also did an internship at an electronics company, where she was part of a team planning green projects. The company adopted her idea of setting up a green wall, which helped to lower the temperature in the cafeteria. At the same time, she also helped to procure sustainable furniture, reduce restaurant waste and encouraged her colleagues to attend environmental talks.
Suhui is an active volunteer at LepakInSG, a pro-environmental organisation. She constantly tries to reduce her waste footprint by using eco-friendly bags when shopping and rarely has takeaway meals. She said: “It is meaningful to promote what you believe in. Everyone can contribute and play a part. I hope to influence my classmates to do the same for the environment."
