Let's Go Green
Are you by nature a green person? See what we did there! Singapore is a nation addicted to plastics. In 2018, we used 820 million plastic bags from supermarkets and 473 million polypropylene plastic disposable items such as take-away containers*. Many of these items end up in landfills instead of being recycled partly because plastics when tainted with food or liquid cannot be recycled. We can start reducing our use of disposable items or start upcycling items that cannot be recycled instead of throwing them away. It’s time we get creative with our trash and start talking (about) trash.
Here is your chance to start going green. Click on any of these campaigns or volunteer opportunities that conserve our environment, protect our wildlife and makes Singapore a greener nation!
