“It is important to take responsibility as we work towards living more sustainably. W2W’s award-winning blockchain technology empowers every bag owner to trace the journey of their daily asset from collection point to final production. Every purchase also comes with conservation included and proceeds go into the conservation projects we support and fund in Singapore and Southeast Asia.”
– Daisy Tan, VP of Retail for Mandai Wildlife Group
As a member of World Association of Zoo and Aquariums and WWFPACT (Plastic ACTion) champion, Mandai Wildlife Group is committed to significantly reduce single-use plastics in its F&B and retail operations. The Group is a recipient of the Singapore Packaging Agreement (SPA) Merit Award, in recognition of the efforts to reduce, reuse and recycle packaging waste.
Singapore’s wildlife parks save 1.3 million single-use plastic bottles annually by providing water refill points for its visitors as part of efforts to galvanise the community to refuse single-use plastic and to choose sustainably-sourced products. At its F&B outlets, 9 out of 10 plastic items like cups and food containers have been converted to reusables or alternative materials. Items like straws, stirrers and carrier bags are offered only on request. By 2025, 50% of retail merchandise is targeted to meet sustainable standards and/or contribute to wildlife conservation or social causes.
Waste2Wear’s latest innovation in support of sustainable living is now available as part of the conscious range of merchandise at Singapore’s wildlife parks located at Mandai Wildlife Reserve and Jurong. Waste2Wear’s award winning bag is made from recycled polypropylene (RPP) and the company’s innovative concept has garnered several industry awards for environmental resilience.
