Green T Movement

The Green T Movement is an IG that aims to promote environmental sustainability in Tembusu by providing the infrastructure and small reminders for lifestyle change. Our primary aim is to increase the recycling rates and reduce the electricity and disposal usage amongst Tembusians.

The Tembusu (Fagraea fragrans) is a large evergreen tree in the family Gentianaceae. It is native to Southeast Asia. Its trunk is dark brown, with deeply fissured bark, looking somewhat like a bittergourd. It grows in an irregular shape from 10 to 25m high. Its leaves are light green and oval in shape. Its yellowish flowers have a distinct fragrance and the fruits of the tree are bitter tasting red berries, which are eaten by birds and fruit bats.
