Ways to Care for the Environment

Beyond the popular 3 R’s on reducing waste and conserving resources – Reduce, Reuse and Recycle – tiny changes in your lives can make a huge impact in creating a cleaner and greener place to live in. Since PARKROYAL on Kitchener Road’s recent unveiling of a full-scale transformation, we have embarked on various sustainable initiatives, like the removal of single-use plastics as well as the installation of in-room filtered water taps to replace plastic bottles and more. So as we journey through a greener and zero waste lifestyle, we hope to inspire you to take on and explore different ways in which you can care for the environment. 

1. Say NO to plastics


Plastics are one of the slowest to break down as it is a combination of chemical structures that renders them resistant as compared to other materials. Did you know that a single plastic cup can take 50 to 80 years to break down? Millions of animals are killed or endangered and humans are affected through the food chain.

We recommend adopting a habit of bringing your very own set of cutleries, bottles, recyclable bags and other reusable items in efforts to reduce the amount of plastic wastes generated daily. Practice the 3 R’s – Reduce, Reuse and Recycle – as part of your daily lives; use your own container and mugs for takeaway meals; opt for paper, bamboo or metal straws instead of the plastic ones, and learn to sort your trash according to their materials. Consider purchasing a set of reusable cutlery and food bags from Your Sustainable Store – they are durable, good for the environment and pleasing to look at!

2. Shop zero-waste grocery and lifestyle products at Unpackt


Grocery shopping and food deliveries churn out the most plastic wastes – from plastic bags, food packaging to even the leftovers. With UnPackt, Singapore's first zero-waste bulk store and a homegrown social enterprise, you can enjoy packaging-free shopping which allows you to choose the exact amount of food you require. This means you gt to minimize waste and maximize the products you are paying for. You can either bring your own containers or reusable packaging to store your purchases. Apart from dried food items, Unpackt sells environmentally friendly lifestyle and cleaning products too! 

3. Costal Cleanups around Singapore


It takes hard work for Singapore to attain its title as one of the world’s cleanest and greenest country, and we hope to wear this badge of honour for many years to come. Just like land pollution, sea pollution is equally concerning as it affects the beautiful eco-system that lies beneath the waters; that includes the beautiful corals, sea creatures and the food we consume.

Seven Clean Seas, Nature Society, and Little Green Men are some of the few groups in Singapore that organize regular coastal clean ups around the country and islands nearby. We, too, can do our part in actively tackling waste problems, beyond what the cleaners do daily. Tip: Bring along your own gloves and stainless steel tongs and don on comfortable yet suitable attire.
