FREE YOURSELF FROM PLASTIC
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.
