RAS gears up for SaniGives
Towards the end of last year, The Restroom Association (Singapore) unveiled plans for SaniGives, a new initiative designed to recognise cleaning attendants. RAS asked its existing partners - Adkel Solutions, Adsec Global, and Viso - to support SaniGives by raising donations.
The donations will be used to organise tribute meals and present grocery vouchers to cleaning attendants during 'appreciation activities'. Members of the public who donate to RAS online via www.giving.sg will benefit from discounts of up to $60 when they purchase products directly from the three partners.
As well as approaching the Singapore Sanitary Ware Importers & Exporters Association to invite its members to support SaniGives, RAS has also met up with TOTO Asia to seek its support.
RAS has also targeted Our Tampines Hub (OTH) as the venue for the LOO (Let's Observe Ourselves) Awards which will incorporate the launch of SaniGives. RAS has discussed with the People's Association to seek possible collaborations of holding a three-day carnival at OTH to raise public awareness about SaniGives and organise an appreciation activity for restroom cleaning attendants in the East.
In its bid to raise further public awareness about SaniGives, RAS has also written to supermarket chains to support SaniGives and help publicise it at their outlets.
"While cleaning attendants play a fundamental role in maintaining the cleanliness of toilets, owners can also play an active role of improving the standards of toilets," says RAS president Ms Tan Puay Hoon (pictured).
"With trained cleaning attendants and committed owners, considerate users will effectively close the loop for clean toilets. Therefore, user education is paramount to the sustainability of clean toilets, as we continue to reach out to the public of all ages and backgrounds.
"We conducted an educational talk for staff of Jurong West Primary School prior to an assembly talk for its students. From the middle of this year, we also aim to organise more roadshows and exhibitions at shopping malls to reach out to more adults."
