Ayer Ayer Project
This year, ADEX partnered with The Ayer Ayer Project and conservation artist Ernest Goh to highlight microplastics in the ocean with a microplastics art installation and photography exhibition. Single-use plastic bottles were banned at the event and visitors were encouraged to bring their own water bottles and top them up at Ayer Ayer’s water dispensers made with recycled wood boards. For visitors with no bottles of their own, ADEX collaborated with Revolv to supply metal cups. Visitors paid a S$10 initial deposit with S$8 refunded when the cup was returned at the end of each day. ADEX also partnered with food vendor Dish Dash to ensure that food was served on natural and eco alternatives to plastic.
