GreenCoin redemption capability is now further extended! You can exchange your GreenCoins for Carbon Coins* at any reverse vending machines (RVM) on campus, thus broadening the usability of rewards on both schemes!

With this new arrangement, you can exchange at a rate of 1 GreenCoin to 1 Carbon Coin. With enough GreenCoins with your GreenCoin app, you will be able to see the corresponding in-app e-coupons and you can select if you want to convert 20, 30, 50 or 100 Coins. Simply redeem that e-coupon to put it “In Your Pocket”, and then visit the RVM to do this conversion – enter your Carbon Coin Membership ID (if you are already a registered Carbon Coin member, it means your mobile number) and let the machine scan your in-app e-coupon – and it’s done!

Earn GreenCoins and convert them just the way you like!

Also read the E-COUPONS section for details.
