What is Plan(et) B? Implementing Sustainability instead of Green Washing
Our Third Young Professionals Network (YPN) for the year is happening on 24 Sept 2019 in collaboration with Six Senses Maxwell and UnPackt.
In 2018, 380 million tonnes of plastics were produced globally, with the majority finding its way into landfills or entering the natural environment. As consumers, our usage of single-use plastics contributes to this pollution, with some scientists estimating that by 2050, there will be more plastic than fish, by weight, in our oceans. Clearly, steps have to be taken to reduce the usage of single-use plastics, for the future of our planet.
Six Senses is an international chain of resorts that has a strong focus on Sustainable practices in their operations. Their practices include waste reduction, local purchasing, and buying fish from producers with sustainable fishing practices. Join us as we listen to Ms Moon, Sustainability Manager at Six Senses Duxton, share the sustainable practices that Six Senses have put in place.
UnPackt is the first Zero-Waste specialty grocer and wholesaler in Singapore. They offer packaging-free shopping, where customers have to bring their own containers to purchase groceries, minimising the usage of excessive plastic packaging. Join Ms Florence Tay and Mr Jeff Lam, Co-Founders of UnPackt, as they share their insights into the reduction of usage of plastic packaging, and the acceptance of this concept amongst the community. Join us for a fun and insightful evening! Connect with fellow young professions and expand your network over finger food and drinks.
