Yup, you read that right. For a whole year, Taman Tugu is sponsoring plants to be given away for FREE at their nursery, in partnership with Uniqlo.

Every Saturday from 8.30am – 10.30am, 200 plants of different species will be prepared to be given away to the public under the Taman Tugu Plant Giveaway programme. Pick up super cute plants for any home as they have a pretty wide selection, from easy-care spider plants to flowering jasmines that require full sun and rain.

If you have young children, you can also bring them over here for the Plant & Hunt programme specially designed for children to learn about plants’ lifecycles and seed dispersion through a series of educational activities.

Uniqlo Donates RM300,000

These initiatives are sponsored by Uniqlo Malaysia, who recently donated RM300,000 to support Taman Tugu’s conservation projects.

According to Uniqlo Malaysia, the RM300,000 donation is part of the proceeds collected from paper shopping bag charges imposed on customers. (So at least you know those paper bag fees are good for the environment!)

Additionally, Uniqlo has adopted two corporate plots for tree planting. Each plot measures nine square metres (3m x 3m) and will sustain at least five indigenous trees per plot that are crucial to the local nature’s ecosystem. These corporate plots are a new initiative by Taman Tugu, and Uniqlo is the first corporate partner to partake in this initiative.

Partnerships with large corporations like UNIQLO can help effect real change and progress in forest conservation activities. We appreciate UNIQLO’s support and believe their contribution will help raise environmental awareness and benefit the conservation and preservation efforts at Taman Tugu.

Since 2020, Uniqlo has made the change to environmentally friendly shopping bags made from Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified paper that is harvested in a responsible manner.

Additionally, each bag given to customers come with a RM0.30 charge, which is collected and channeled towards various sustainability efforts such as this one. For more information, visit Uniqlo’s website.
