+ #USELESSPLASTICS roadshow by WWF

#USELESSPLASTICS.png

Plastics are durable, light and versatile. However, they take up to 400 years to decompose. This will affect people’s lives for the next 16 generations. 

In Singapore, about 700 million kg of plastic waste is discarded every year.  But less than 10% of plastics are being recycled.

Our excessive use of plastics is impacting ocean health and biodiversity. By 2050, there could be more plastics in the ocean than fish by weight.

Come join us to learn more about how plastics affect not only our oceans but our climate too through our engaging games and activities. We will also be featuring our new sustainable WWF Merchandise line to help support our campaigns.
