This New Year, Tiger Beer is working with the pioneers of sustainability in Singapore – the Karung Guni, to inspire and educate Singapore on the importance of recycling as part of a more sustainable lifestyle. We encourage Singaporeans young and old to collect and recycle cans, bottles and other household waste using current recycling infrastructure.
|Beverage bottles, Cosmetic bottles, Glass cups and plates, Food containers||Drink cans, Food cans, Biscuit, milk and food tins, Aluminium trays and foil||Drink bottles, Food bottles, Bodywash and shampoo bottles, Detergent bottle, Bread wrapper packaging|
|Ceramics, Light bulbs or fluorescent lamps, Mirror, Windows.||Paint cans, motor oil cans||Disposable plates, bowls and cutlery, Styrofoam boxes, Straws, Cassette and video tapes.|
NOTE: Empty recyclables of any liquid or solid content. Rinse them with water if necessary.
In the month of January and February, our Karung Guni partners will be going around the heartlands of Toa Payoh and Jurong West for a recycling drive. Leading up to the Lunar New Year, we are encouraging Singaporeans to spring clean wisely, separate wastes and recycle them accordingly. Be on the lookout for the Karung Gunis in Tiger t-shirts!
Don’t forget to thank them for helping to keep Singapore green and take a selfie with these recycling pioneers!
According to Singapore’s Ministry of Environment & Water Resources, our country’s only landfill site at Pulau Semakau will run out of space in less than 20 years – so by 2035 there will literally be nowhere else for our waste to go. Imagine this – where would all your waste then pile up? Your favourite park, the usual makan places, or worse, even your house! Now that is scary!
APB Singapore believes that caring for the environment is a collective effort and together, we can pave the way towards a greener future.
Here are some ways we bring #ReduceYourWasteline to life in our brewery.
Asia Pacific Breweries Singapore (APB Singapore) launched its #ReduceYourWasteline campaign to highlight the issue of packaging waste in Singapore, and the need to reduce the amount of waste we generate.
Through this campaign, APB Singapore hopes to start a movement appealing to consumers to make more environmentally-friendly choices and reduce how much they’re throwing away throughout the course of their daily lives.
As a company, APB Singapore prides itself on being a sustainable brewer, and now calls on Singapore to also do its part to reduce its waste footprint, working together towards being a zero-waste nation.
