Zero Waste SG is planning to crowdsource a public poll on plastic bags charge in Singapore. We are looking for 100 volunteers to conduct a short interview with customers at supermarkets. Each volunteer is expected to interview only 10 people at the supermarket location of their choice. If you are interested, pls sign up at http://goo.gl/forms/xxxR1BEBKbNVhLvh2 and we will get back to you soon. Thanks!

The tentative survey questions include:

  • Supermarket Name and Location
  • Gender and Age
  • Housing Type
  • Brought own reusable bag or own trolley?
  • If there is a 10 cents charge for each plastic bag, would you reduce the plastic bags that you take?
  • If there is a 10 cents charge for each plastic bag, would you bring your own reusable bags?
  • Would the 10 cents charge per plastic bag add to your financial burden?
  • What do you think is a reasonable charge for plastic bags?

Free Food Waste Awareness Talks for Companies

We are currently conducting free food waste awareness talks for companies. The talk is about 1.5 hours and involves the screening of a video on food waste in Singapore, followed by a presentation on the food waste problem and what individuals can do to reduce food waste. We also have free posters and stickers from NEA for companies to display at their pantry to remind staff to reduce food waste.

Companies that are interested in the free talk can reply to us at talks@zerowastesg.com with some suitable dates and time so that we can arrange for our volunteers to give the talk. Companies are welcomed to make a donation to Zero Waste SG if they wish to, and we hope that at least 20 people attend the talk so that it is worth our time.
