In 2016, we generated 822,200 tonnes of plastic in Singapore, about the total weight of all the private cars here. In Singapore,"only 51,800 tonnes of plastic were recycled last year, down from the 57,554 tonnes in 2016." (ST report published on Mar 20, 2018). Globally, the production and consumption of plastics have continued to rise.

What can we do as educators to raise awareness amongst our students and inspire them to take action?
