“There appears to be even more trash this week!”
It was a week with corporate programs and school talks plus our members weekday and weekend duties. Disappointing week though, as we appear to collect much more litter this week- much more and very disturbing. Are we not learning that public social behaviour is still very much needed and extremely important for a sustainable Singapore? Why, why, why are we still seeing so much litter, committed by irresponsible public users?
We are counting on everyone to do their part – bin your litter and do not pollute our environment, especially our waters.
