Our consumption on plastic poses a threat to many lives – animals, the earth, and even us, humans. In 2015, Singapore generated a total of 824,600 tonnes of plastic waste and only a mere 7% was recycled. We developed a ‘throw-away culture’ which places an emphasis on the new, quick and streamlined without any consideration for our environment.
The food and catering industry is one key area that contributes large amounts of plastic waste, from eating our lunches with plastic ware, drinking water from bottles to disposable party utensils. Hence, we would like to introduce an edible utensil company to Singapore’s market.
