We live in such an intense consumer society and so much waste is produced. This page will give you simple and effective ideas to adopt sustainable green habits for everyday living.
DID YOU KNOW that Singapore has Ewaste recycling bins in many places (probably close to where you live, work or pass everyday)? This means all your old unused / useless cables, phones, printers, old laptops, lithium batteries can be reused rather than garbaged.
REFUSE PLASTIC BAGS
Change the habit of taking plastic bags and you will change consumption. Straightforward and simple just REFUSE PLASTIC BAGS. Make it a point to shop with your own bags or to not shop if you forgot to bring a bag. It's not a punishment if you forget but a gentle reminder that your habit needs more training.
What about garbage? Did you know Fairprice sells eco friendly garbage bags.
Found a lovely recycling uncle Mr Toh to pass 1 microwave, 1 oven, 1 portable fan cooler and 1 portable aircon for $80. I paid him.
He takes the item apart to look for spare parts or if none are there the items go to a metal scrap centre.
