Singapore generated more than 800 million kg of plastic waste in 2017, and only six per cent of consumer plastic waste was recycled. Most plastics produced are single-use plastics and as consumers, we urgently need to rethink the way we make, use and reuse plastics.
Join us in the Community Lab as we rethink how we as individuals can close the loop on plastic recycling. In this talk, we’ll cover the fundamentals of Circular Economy, resources used to make plastic in a linear economy and how to be low carbon and waste in our consumer habits. There will also be a plastic recycling demonstration by our friends from PlastiCity SG and a chance for you to make reusable plastic with the machines they have built!
We are also looking for partners to share their different initiatives as well during this event, so drop us an email!
