by Anne Das

Hey Ipoh fam! Brace yourselves for a festive weekend that’s as green as our lush hills!!!

With Christmas just around the corner, let’s ditch the commercial chaos and sleigh into the season with a whole lot of eco-love. The first-ever Ipoh Zero Waste Bazaar, happening this weekend at the Red Mountain Sin Yoon Loong Cafe is not just another market—it’s a movement toward a more sustainable holiday season.

Refill to reduce, start here!

Organised by the dynamic duo, Ipoh Refill and Red Mountain Sin Yoon Loong White Coffee, this two-day extravaganza promises a celebration of mindful choices and sustainable living. From farm-fresh produce to unique handcrafted items, homemade goodies, and sustainable alternatives for everyday essentials, it’s a shopper’s paradise without the guilt. Plus, the vendors are all about reducing single-use packaging, aligning perfectly with the vision of Perak Sejahtera 2030.

Consider getting something essential, environmentally conscious, handmade, repurposed & refilled.

This is your chance to break free from the chains of consumerism and give your loved one’s gifts that truly matter. Think about the joy of unwrapping presents that won’t harm the environment, and that’s exactly what you’ll find at the Ipoh Zero Waste Bazaar. Your gift list just got a lot eco-friendlier!

Nut to Jar Delight ~ Freshly churned organic nut butter awaits you. Don’t forget to bring your own jar for a sustainable twist!

Before you head to the Ipoh Zero Waste Bazaar, let’s make sure you’re prepped and ready for an eco-friendly adventure. Remember to grab those recycle/reusable bags, jars, and containers – they’re all about that BYOC (Bring Your Own Container) life! Whether it’s Acar, freshly churned nut butter, or some delightful cleaning products, having your own containers in tow makes the experience even more fantastic.

Harvested with care, Jiwa Asli Organik brings you fresh organic fruits and vegetables straight from the farm in Kampung Orang Asli, Perak.

But wait, there’s more to this than just scoring sustainable swag. Gather the whole family, kids included, for a memorable River Clean-Up session with Kennedy Michael, the force behind ART! (Alliance of River Three). This isn’t just about saving the environment; it’s about teaching our little ones the power of making a positive impact. This weekend is an opportunity to create lasting memories and instil eco-values in our next generation.

Kennedy will be conducting a workshop and guiding participants in a river clean up session at the river behind the Bukit Merah Wood Factory. 17th Sunday at 9am.( river clean up session will start after the talk)

So, mark your calendars and let’s make this weekend a celebration of mindful choices that collectively contribute to a greener, cleaner Ipoh. And it’s also a chance to kickstart this holiday season that truly reflects our love for Mother Earth.
