The Straits Times carried an article on the initiatives by different groups and individuals to reduce waste, and featured Coco Oan’s efforts (Class of 2022) to recycle plastic containers by donating them to people such as bakers. However, she realised her efforts to get people to re-use the containers did little to curb the number of them in circulation. Under another initiative called Circular CNY, she asked businesses if they would give discounts to customers who brought their own containers. 14 businesses including home bakeries and physical stores signed up this year.
Lianhe Zaobao also published a story on Coco’s initiative to reduce use of plastic containers.
