The #Green24  campaign started as AirAsia Group changed their iconic red logo in their social media pages for 24 hours from 29 to 30 January into a vibrant green. The airline also released a special invitation video by Group CEO, Tony Fernandes inviting the public to be proactive in protecting the environment and the earth.

“On our side of the world, not many people know about the issues that climate change poses, and we feel that the best thing for us to do is to inform people. Many of us don’t really see the problems coming, but at AirAsia we have seen the effects of climate change such as Typhoon Haiyan that struck Tacloban in the Philippines, the floods that happened around the region and massive climatic changes over the past two to three years.” Tony Fernandes said
“We always look after our own mothers, and we always put our mothers first in many things. But now, it’s time we put Mother Earth first as well. It’s time we let the world know that we need to take better care of the planet we live in,” he added.

Activities that happened includes recycling drive, forest and beach clean-ups and climate change awareness engagements in Malaysia and Thailand, reusable bags were distributed for free in leading malls and in select AirAsia flights in Indonesia to discourage the use of plastics, information awareness about climate change are conducted in different venues in Myanmar and Cambodia, AirAsia offices in Singapore, China, Hongkong, Korea and Macau also spent 24 hours sorting recyclable papers, segregating garbage and collecting old batteries and used clothes.
