Since 2008, we encouraged our customers to Go Green with CARiNG.
 
In our recent campaigns, CARiNG has given out more than 60,000 recycle bags to our customers. Furthermore we provided monetary rewards through instant rebates to those who use recycle bags or paper bags instead of plastic bags.

In this program, 20 selected primary and secondary schools nationwide received a few units of first aid kits for daily usage and are entitled to replenish their first aid items at dedicated CARiNG stores in 2017 and 2018. CARiNG also worked hand-in-hand with the schools to create health awareness among the students through an activation program.
