SINGAPORE: Some 1,000 residents in Nee Soon Central have pledged to go green.

They signed up for the Reduce @ North West programme -- an initiative to educate and encourage residents to do their part in fighting climate change and reducing energy consumption -- thanks to the efforts of students from Chung Cheng High School.

To mark their school's 75th year, 1,450 students visited 75 blocks in the area to spread the go-green message to residents in about 6,000 households in Nee Soon Central.

MP for Nee Soon GRC Faishal Ibrahim said he is heartened to see students involved in such efforts.

He elaborated: "They were able to share (the go-green message) with the residents well, and very confidently. I hope this will bring goodness to the future generation, because when they're involved, they internalise it in their hearts and minds, it becomes a permanent feature in their lives."
