We participated at the UGreen Awards Carnival organized by U Magazine. It was great to reach out to the public and shared about our story of starting WeFill and our passion in making the Earth a greener place.
Our founder Maggie went on stage with the founders of other InnoTeams and together they shared their view on sustainability. Maggie also shared about using innovation to combat climate change. Four strangers with the same goal: reduce excessive packaging and promote sustainability.
Toiletries are daily necessities and they are a good introduction to sustainability. Have you ever thought of the materials that make your toothbrush? Correct, from the handle to the brush, it is made of plastic. Plastic takes 500 years to biodegrade and we have seen the many horrifying turtle photos with the plastic straws stuck up to its nose. Let's think an extra step when we purchase an item. Here are a few questions to help you decide before you purchase:
1. Do I really need it?
2. How long or often will I use it for?
3. What will I do with it by the end of it's life journey? Is it biodegradable?
Let's join hands to make this earth a greener place, as we are all citizens of sustainability!
