TOGETHER WE PLEDGE AGAINST SINGLE-USE PLASTIC

First world nations to third world countries. We are facing the same environmental epidemy – plastic pollution. As convenient, durable, light and versatile, this 111 years old invention takes up to 400 years to decompose and have impose to affect the lives of people and living creatures for the next 16 generations to come. The excessive and irresponsible consumption of plastics is impacting ocean health and biodiversity. Some research has reported that by 2050, there could be more plastics in the ocean than fish if our current consumption habits are unchanged*.

8,000,000 tons of plastics are dumped in the ocean each year. China, Indonesia, Philippines and Vietnam are reported as countries dumping the most plastic waste than any other region in the world from its shared river systems and waterways as the conduits of this problem**. In Singapore, we consume about 1.76 billion kilogramme of plastic items a year of plastic waste is discarded every year but less than 20% of plastics are being recycled! *** But, this nations have since then implement changes through the policies to curb this worldly plastic pollution issue.

On ADEX 2019 edition, celebrating its 25th silver milestone, uw360° together with the congregation of esteemed ‘Friends of ADEX’ take on this opportunity of raising awareness about the polluting impacts of plastic packaging by taking a pledge to the refusal, reuse, reduce and recycle of single-use plastic products in ADEX exhibition hall!

  • REFUSE disposable plastic whenever and wherever possible. Choose items that are not packaged in plastic, and carry your own bags, containers and utensils. Say 'no straw, please.'
  • REUSE durable, non-toxic straws, utensils, to-go containers, bottles, bags, and other everyday items. Choose glass, paper, stainless steel, wood, ceramic and bamboo over plastic.
  • REDUCE your plastic footprint. Cut down on your consumption of goods that contain excessive plastic packaging and parts. If it will leave behind plastic trash, don't buy it.
  • RECYCLE what you can’t refuse, reduce or reuse. Pay attention to the entire life cycle of items you bring into your life, from source to manufacturing to distribution to disposal.

我们共同誓约(承诺/保证) 反对单一用途的塑料

第一世界国家到第三世界国家:我们正面临同样的环境风暴 - 塑料污染。 这111岁的发明随然很方便,耐用,轻便,用途广泛,但他需要长达400年的岁月才能分解并。这会影响未来16代人类和生物的生命。 过度与不负责任的塑料消费正在影响海洋健康和多样生态。 一些研究报告说,到2050年,如果我们目前的消费习惯不变,海洋中的塑料可能会比鱼类多。

每年有8,000,000吨塑料被倾倒在海洋中。 据报道,中国,印度尼西亚,菲律宾和越南在共用的河流系统和水道倾倒最多塑料废物,超越世界上任何其他的国家**。 在新加坡,我们每年消耗大约17.6亿公斤塑料物品,每年丢弃的塑料废物中,不到20%的塑料被回收!***

在ADEX 2019庆祝第25周年纪念银色里程碑,uw360°与受人尊敬的“ADEX之友”会众一起,借此机会提高对塑料包装污染影响的认识,并且在ADEX展厅承诺对单一用途塑料制品说不,重复使用,减少和回收!

·       拒绝使用一次性塑料,无论随时随地。 选择未用塑料包装的物品,并携带自己的袋子,餐盒和餐具。 请对一次性塑料吸管说'不’。

·       重新使用耐用,无毒的吸管,餐具,外带餐盒,水壶(瓶子),袋子和其他日常用品。 在塑料以外选择玻璃,纸,不锈钢,木材,陶瓷和竹子。
