When it comes to cleaning our homes, our first thought is to just buy name brand cleaners that are relatively cheap, but that doesn’t mean that is safe or toxic-free! Many of today’s common household cleaners are not just bad for the environment, they are potentially quite harmful to the health of our loved ones and children.
If you have been shopping for your daily essentials, you’d be hard-pressed to find a product that doesn’t come wrapped in a thin plastic packaging these days!
While the household products we consume individually may not seem like a lot, but cumulatively, these products meant to enhance our convenience have a large carbon footprint, clog up the oceans, and pollute the air.
Conscious consumerism is becoming the ‘in’ thing, and if you’ve already hopped onto the bandwagon by purchasing your very own metal straw, here’s how you can take it a step further!
Solar energy works by converting the sun’s energy, visible light & infrared, into electricity that can be used to power homes and industries.
Solar power is one of the most abundant and cleanest energy sources today, is perfect for land-scarce countries like Singapore and easily integrated into both the home-setting and commercial businesses.
As the world gears up to fight against climate change, Singapore is following suit with The Carbon Pricing Act (CPA) that came into effect on 1st Jan 2019 that introduces a carbon tax to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
This carbon tax not only affects industries and businesses in Singapore, but it also affects consumers who purchase electricity for their daily and household needs.
Whether you are a business owner or a resident, this guide will take you through what the carbon tax in Singapore is all about and how it affects you.
With spring cleaning coming up for the Lunar New Year, you might be tempted to just throw all your unwanted junk into the garbage bin to make it fast & easy – but hold on, there is a better way!
With recycling, you will not only do your part for the environment and do your part to promote sustainability but also helping the less fortunate in Singapore.
From the plastic cups containing our favorite Starbucks drinks to plastic bags holding our groceries, the world today is highly reliant on plastic and it is causing devastating effects on our environment.
Climate change is one of the biggest issues facing the world and its devastating effects include an increase in global temperatures, higher instances of droughts and heatwaves as well as a rising sea level.
Here’s a not-so-fun fact: 71% of the world’s greenhouse gases are generated by just 100 companies.
Companies exist to make profits — there’s no denying that. But taking into consideration the devastating consequences of climate change, it’s important for these companies to do their part, and take steps to reduce their impact on the environment. Read More
If you want to be more environmentally-friendly, you’d recycle your trash, use less disposable items, and… abstain from travelling?
Not many people realize this, but air travel is a huge contributor to climate change and global warming. In the US, for instance, transportation is the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions, with flights accounting for 12% of total emissions.
On top of that, there’s the fact that global demand for flights is growing. If we continue at our current pace, analysts predict that emissions from air travel will increase by up to 7x by 2050.
The good news? Many airlines are now taking steps to become more eco-friendly and sustainable, and do their part for the environment.
In this blog post, we share the green initiatives that Singapore Airlines, Virgin Atlantic, Cathay Pacific, Air France and United Airlines have implemented, and discuss how these will impact the environment.
