Straw Wars Singapore
What can you contribute to our mother nature? Our environment needs love and affection. Be part of our campaign against plastic straws. The battle continues; and we are challenging you to consistently refuse and say no to single-use plastic straws when you do not need them.
Let's start your eco journey simply start by saying no to single-use plastic straws, or for businesses to simply ask first if your customer requires a straw for his/her drink, and have an alternative to plastic straws.
Little by little we can make difference, and we can make this World a better place for everyone.
First, we want to applaud businesses that don’t serve straws or offer alternatives to the single-use plastic straw. We also want to applaud those businesses who are taking the 1st step. We are asking businesses to serve a straw upon customer request and not just automatically put 1 or 2 straws in their drink, tray, table or takeaway.
All individuals who feel like we do about our oceans, sign the from today & make your voice heard. We will share stories about about your awesomeness in our social media and more.
In Singapore alone, consumers use about 2.5 billion plastic bags a year (a quote from Zero Waste SG). There are efforts by the Government to reduce the consumption of plastic bags, but it is limited.
Did you know: Plastic straws cannot be recycled because of its size range. This means that it goes to landfills for years, contaminates our land and oceans, and is ingested by marine animals.
