无我利他,向善向上 —— 绿一点七周年回馈日活动

绿一点集团于本月15日下午3点至5点,携旗下的四个品牌Greendot, Lotus Vegetarian, Lotus Kitchen, 以及Vairy共计140位员工于东海岸B区域清理垃圾。 今年的8月16日是绿一点的七周年生日。本着“无我利他,向善向上”的企业文化,我们选择通过回馈大自然的方式提升员工的环保意识,以微薄之力减少海洋垃圾,为同处一个地球的海洋生物们提供更温馨的家园。   海滩乍眼望去似乎很清洁,但是弯下腰仔细看时就会发现有数不胜数的细小烟头、瓶盖、泡沫碎块等等。 正是这些看似不起眼的小东西,却是对海洋生物的巨大伤害甚至造成生命威胁。我们无数次从照片或Youtube视频里看到,在沙滩上死亡的海鸟在解剖之后肚子里是满满不可降解的塑料垃圾,脖子上套着硬塑料而被割得鲜血淋漓的海豹,还有鼻孔里插着吸管的海龟等等。 设身处地想一想,一根吸管暂时插入我们的鼻孔都让我们不舒服,想要尽快用手拔掉。而海龟不会说话或呼救,也无法用手自行拔除,只能带着这样的痛苦终生。 我们推广素食的初心就是鼓励大众吃得健康、身心舒适,同时培养慈悲心,关爱其他生命。不要小看我们的每一点努力,当所有善念善行相累积,我们都能为这个世界上的其他生命活得更好而做出贡献。 古语云,聚少成多,积小致巨。我们希望以此作为一个善的缘起,呼吁更多人关注并参与到海洋环保的具体行动中来。

The “Entrepreneur” Mentality

Came back to office on a public holiday and saw almost the whole team back in office! 😂 One quality that I really look out for in my team is the “entrepreneur” mentality which boils down to 3 points: 1) Be passionate about what you do and continuously learn and grow in your area of expertise. […]

Say “I love you Mum” with a Home-Cooked Meal

I once heard someone say: 世界上有两件事情不能等: 一是行孝,二是行善。 It means that there are 2 things in the world which wait for no man – filial piety and doing good. I’m in my late twenties this year and I must say I’m a very very lucky son. I have a mum who likes to nag at me […]

Caring Through Food – Why ‘Home-cooked’ Meals?

I remembered that I was helping out at my mother’s restaurant one day and the lunch period was just over. Feeling really hungry, I asked my mom what were we having for lunch. Smiling back at me, she told me that we were going to have stir-fried broccoli with fresh mushrooms and Tom Yum fried […]

5 Life Skills That Cooking Has Taught Me

Before Greendot was started, I didn’t even know how to wash rice and vegetables. It wasn’t easy for me to venture into something that I had zero domain knowledge. However, I have never regretted picking up cooking and after honing my “culinary skills” for the past 2-3 years, I must admit that my “cooking” years […]
