They’ve got discounts and cashback deals for groceries, activities, utilities and even classes for kids. All of these promos tie back to doing good for the environment, so you can reap savings while also contributing to a greater cause.

Made possible through the DBS Travel & Leisure Marketplace, you can now get $8 cashback when you sign up for the Extra Bonus Day campaign and participate in activities hosted by social enterprises. Here are some examples:

Living in the concrete jungle, us Singaporeans don’t get many opportunities to get down and dirty with good ol’ nature. Social enterprises like Edible Garden City allow locals to get a rare glimpse into our little red dot’s agriculture industry.

You can attend the Edible Garden City Tour: Queenstown Farm for $45/pax, or purchase a RGB Grow Kit at $29 to set up your own mini urban farm at home.

If you want to try your hand at actual harvesting, sign up for Ground-Up Initiative (GUI)‘s Kampung Harvest activity ($50/pax). Take home your own loot of organic lady fingers, bok choy, Chinese spinach, and the exotic winged bean, among others.

2. Pick up barista skills in a Brewology Basics workshop

Singaporeans love cafe-hopping, and a good cup of Joe can be tough to beat. To recreate cafe-worthy brews at home and save money on exorbitantly priced brunch dishes, have a go at Bettr Barista’s Brewology Basics Workshop.

At $43/pax, you’ll get the full scoop on what the brewing process is like, and the elements behind a well-balanced brew. Having this newfound knowledge will also enable you to better appreciate sustainably sourced beans, and opt for coffee manufactured with a lesser carbon footprint.

3. Learn how to preserve flowers and create flower arrangements

Whether it’s to celebrate a momentous occasion like a birthday or anniversary, or turn a regular day instantly special, gorgeous flowers never fail to do the job. We can all agree that bouquets and arrangements cost a pretty penny though, which is where BloomBack comes in.

They’re offering a Flower Dome Workshop ($170/pax) to impart the team’s skills and expertise, and you’ll be able to craft your own breathtaking flower arrangements for future gifts. The workshop will also cover flower preservation, a therapeutic activity allowing you to get closer to nature and appreciate the earth’s beautiful offerings.

– Groceries –

4. Save on sustainably-sourced foods with 8% cashback on groceries

Parents are always on the prowl for kids’ activities that are both entertaining and enriching. The DBS Education Marketplace is home to a slew of classes, workshops, and resources such as book bundles and revision packs.

With a DBS/POSB Card in hand, you’ll be entitled to a guaranteed $8 cashback when you sign up for the Extra Bonus Day campaign, and up to 15% off your DBS Education Marketplace purchases.

Nothing ignites a young one’s hunger to learn quite like letting them explore nature. To ensure a safe and controlled environment where they can roam around and let their curiosity guide them, engage a professional activity provider like Flying Cape.

There’s also an activity called Joy Of Building (from $180/pax) where participants can get hands-on and craft wildlife dwellings with materials like wood, stones, and mud. DBS/POSB Cardmembers can get up to $33 off the Joy Of Building classes.
