Human Nature

Singapore is leading the charge on all things environmental, aiming to eventually become a completely zero waste nation. However, according to academic Sonny Ben Rosenthal, “There is no rubbish piling up on the streets, so Singaporeans don’t perceive a waste problem or feel personally responsible to reduce waste.”

Although 60% of all plastic which makes its way into our oceans comes from just six countries in Asia, plastic pollution is a global problem. That’s why Sweden and UN Environment have teamed up to support a $6 million project to beat plastic pollution in Southeast Asia. Yes! Yes! Yes!

“An understanding of the natural world and what’s in it is a source of not only a great curiosity but great fulfillment.” —David Attenborough. Why wallow in plastic when we can step out and see the real deal sitting on our doorstep. That’s nature. And human nature too.
