IPC Shopping Centre is back with its annual waste recycling campaign. This year, the centre introduces ‘Gavå with Your Recyclables’ to educate and increase awareness of the importance of sustainability while also increasing shoppers recycling efforts. From today until 31 July, shoppers can enjoy double the ‘Gåva’ – Swedish for rewards; when they recycle paper, plastic, and aluminium at IPC’s Recycling and Buy-Back Centre (RBBC) located at P1 car park level.
Gåva with Your Recyclables
Throughout the 10-week campaign period, IPC Tack Club Members can recycle as often as they wish to reach the required weight accumulation for three (3) recyclable waste categories (paper, plastic, or aluminium) and redeem exclusive rewards. However, recyclables cannot be combined with different categories to meet the required weight accumulation.
- Tier 1 Rewards: Every accumulation of 6kg to receive RM10 worth of e-vouchers + Tack points
- Tier 2 Rewards: Every accumulation of 10kg to receive an RM10 worth of e-vouchers + Tack points + Swedish dishcloth (100% biodegradable)
Shoppers’ recycling histories are recorded and traceable via the Tack Club member activity profile, and redemption of the rewards can be done at i-Counter.
In conjunction with the centre’s waste recycling campaign, IPC Shopping Centre is also the first and only shopping centre to have partnered with Arus Oil to introduce a new recyclable category. Shoppers can recycle their used cooking oil at the centres’ RBBC on selected dates to receive RM1.40/kg additional cashback through the Arus Oil application. By entering the exclusive promo code ‘IPCCUS2023’ under the profile tab in the Arul Oil application, shoppers can enjoy higher rewards at RM1.90/kg cashback. The first 90 recyclers will also receive a free Jerry Can when they present their Arus Oil or Tack Club membership at the Arus Oil booth located next to RBBC on the below collection dates from 10am-8pm:
- 27 May, 3 June, 24 June, 8 July, 29 July, 26 August, 23 September 2023
Additionally, the centre has partnered with Alliance Bank to reward its credit card holders who participate in the waste recycling campaign with a canvas bag when they recycle for a minimum of 6kg of the recyclables. IPC Tack Club members who are Alliance Bank card holders can redeem this at i-Counter, Level G by presenting the Alliance Bank credit or virtual card.
Ms Karyn Lim, General Manager of IPC Shopping Centre, said “IPC is a meeting place that goes beyond a shopping destination, we are also the community hub that inspires our visitors on sustainable waste practices. As a market leader that puts emphasis in promoting sustainability, the centre regularly conducts various recycling and sustainability programmes for the community to partake in and benefit from. This is also one of our business efforts in echoing the government’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.”
“It has been more than a decade where we reward our regular green makers with greater perks to recognise their green efforts, and just like every other year, we will continue to inspire and create a social movement in reducing climate change impact over mindful consumptions” she added.
IPC has several green strategies in place such as using renewable energy technology with the installation of 2,370 solar panels on the rooftop and rainwater harvesting that is filtered and used to flush toilets and for landscaping purposes. The shopping centre also practices waste segregation in partnership with its F&B tenants and works together with IKEA and Kloth Cares for textile recycling. IPC Shopping Centre will also be installing fast charging EV stations to ease eco-friendly drivers who choose to shop and spend time at IPC.
In the spirit of recycling, shoppers can also look forward to a variety of fun activities and events throughout the month including weekend Små Club Workshops at Funland, Level 2 from 2pm to 3pm to educate the little ones on the importance of recycling since young. Materials made from the workshops will then be used to decorate the Gåva display on Level 2 using recycled paper flowers to create a blooming art floral installation. This also acts as a pledge towards protecting Mother Earth through incorporating green initiatives in our everyday lives.
Moreover, shoppers can support virtually by posting photos on Facebook or Instagram accounts using the hashtag #IPCGavaGreen featuring their little environmentalists in action at home and redeem complimentary sticker packs from i-Counter, Level G. For those that wish to bring more greeneries into your homes, IPC will be hosting a plant and lifestyle bazaar from 28 July until 6 August at Midland, Level G.
