FREE YOUR­SELF FROM PLAS­TIC

Herworld (Singapore) - - NEWS -

From rookie-easy to Cap­tain Planet-tough – how ev­ery­one can do their bit for Earth.

Let’s face it – for most of us, con­ve­nience al­ways trumps be­ing ecofriendly. But that’s the kind of at­ti­tude that will sad­dle us with a fu­ture where there’s more plas­tic in our oceans than fish. In Sin­ga­pore alone, we gen­er­ated more than 800 mil­lion kg of plas­tic waste last year – and just 6 per cent of this was re­cy­cled. We know break­ing up with plas­tic is painful, so start small, then work your way up.

The June 2018 is­sue of Na­tional Geo­graphic has the low-down on how plas­tic is harm­ing our planet. Get more de­tails at www.natgeo.com/ plan­e­tor­plas­tic. Pic­ture cour­tesy of Na­tional Geo­graphic.
