Once again LOT 10 will join billions around the world to "Switch Off" for Earth Hour, a global "lights off" event created by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF).

The launch event was attended by Joseph Yeoh, Vice President of YTL Land & Development and YTL Hotels & Properties, Mr. Wan Azmawi bin Dato' Wan Azmi, Chief Executive of Raffles College of Higher Education and Mr. Woon Foo Wen, Chief Executive Officer of Green Tech Malaysia Alliances Sdn Bhd representing Kloth Cares by Kloth Lifestyle and also Mr. Chris Hughes, Wholesale Export and Environmental Manager from Life Line Clothing.

Lot 10 will join more than one billion people across 178 countries to continue its support for Earth Hour on Saturday, 25 March 2017, from 8.30 PM to 9.30 PM, by switching off non-essential lights including its facade's decorative lights. The tenants will also be participating by turning off their lights in their respective stores.

Another highlights of the Lot 10's Earth Hour campaign is the Green Furniture Design Exhibition by Raffles College of Higher Education taking centre stage at the Concourse of Lot 10 until 29 March 2017. Students from the Interior Design Faculty have proposed mall furniture based on the theme of Green and Sustainability, using recycled/recyclable material. The exhibition showcases student's artwork presentation with final visual, conceptual development and sketches on their creations. The public can view these creative interpretations and vote for their favourite piece by submitting vote entry at Lot 10 Cheerleader's Counter by 2nd April 2017. They can also vote online on Lot 10 Kuala Lumpur Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Lot10KL . The top 3 creations with the highest votes will be fabricated and placed within the mall.

"The invitation by Lot 10's management to take part in Earth Hour is timely as it will also increase the awareness of the public to the capabilities of our students and institutions. This collaboration not only evoke a sense of social responsibility but it also inspires our students to communicate ideas and thoughts through design. We look forward too many more collaborative projects in the future", said Mr. Wan Azmawi bin Dato' Wan Azmi, Chief Executive of Raffles College of Higher Education.

The mall has set up Recycle Bins on the Level G, Level 2 and Level 5 where public can drop off their pre-owned clothes, handbags, belts, and soft toys. The initiative by Kloth Cares helps the environment by creating less waste for landfills and less pollution through the reduction in manufacturing new clothes. All proceeds from the sale from this Recycle Bins campaign will be channeled to National Cancer Council (MAKNA), Malaysia Association for the Blind (MAB) and Recycle Community Malaysia Lestari (RCOMMLestari).

"Being part of the global event of Earth Hour is a great honor, especially since it is in line with our corporate identity and philosophy to protect the environment. We take on the responsibility to build our knowledge of sustainable practices and look forward to further promoting green consciousness within the organisation and champion the reduction of energy consumption to do our part for Mother Earth", said Mr. Woon Foo Wen, Chief Executive Officer of Green Tech Malaysia Alliances Sdn Bhd.

The mall also promotes sustainable energy solution by introducing bicycle-powered charger where we can generate electricity through pedal power. The modified bicycles had been installed within the mall where shoppers can ride to charge their phones and mobile devices instantly.

To reduce usage of plastic bags, Lot 10 offers shoppers the Super Lottie Tote Bag which can be redeemed at the Cheerleader's Counter, Level G when they spend RM200 in not more than two combined receipts on the same day.
