13 May 2019 We launched our campaign against #SingleUsePlastic last year. Last year the campaign called for ditching at least one single use plastic item such as straws, plastic bags or cling wraps. This is our 2nd year of campaign for this cause. It commences from today. This year, it is about changing mindset of people regarding plastic products such as bottles, cling wraps, straws and bags which are considered "disposable". We are advocating for the word 'disposable' to be disassociated with plastic products to create better awareness of its non-biodegradable nature. Join us and spread the word using hashtags: #KnowYourPlastic #PlayYourPart #NotDisposable #Plastic
