Anderson Secondary among first secondary schools in BYO Schools Programme

Since the Bring Your Own (BYO) Schools Programme (a collaboration with Zero Waste SG) kicked off last September, 25 schools have signed up for the programme to date, exceeding our initial target of 20.

On 25 January 2018, Anderson Secondary School became one of the first secondary schools to participate in the programme. S.E.A. Aquarium’s conservation team joined Zero Waste SG at the school to share with the students the problem of plastic pollution and the importance of marine conservation.

Ee Lin from our Conservation team spoke about marine conservation and some of the sustainability efforts in S.E.A. Aquarium.
Hailin from Zero Waste SG shared with the students the negative impact of plastic pollution, and how Singapore may run out of landfill space in the near future.

Students were shown eco-friendly alternatives to disposable plastic straws.
