Actions Speak Louder than Words

In the course of a month or two, we come across so much good work going on around the region and in Singapore. So we want to introduce you to some of these activties by directing you to the websites, blogs or portals of some of these players.

There’s Direct Green, working to “make shopping green”, inspired by and managed by Serve Sondeijker.

The ever-active Eugene Tay in Singapore who actively promotes recycling, zerowaste, the circular economy, the shared economy and all other things green and blue. See the green future.

Playgrounds will never be the same again, if CT Art (Singapore) and Playworld Systems (US) have their way. Of course, the outdoors should be fun and safe, but also sustainable and good for the environment. Playworld, for example, is the first and only playground equipment manufacturer  to have its products cradle to cradle certified. This environmental certification system evaluates products and materials for their impact on human and environmental health and assures recyclability.
