Plastic waste has become a significant talking point, especially within this year. Channel NewsAsia (2018) discovered that people living in Singapore dispose of 2640 plastic bags every three seconds! In a fast-paced country where takeaways (also know as dabao/打包) are prevalent, we need to address this pressing issue.

It is inspiring to see that many Singaporeans are starting to incorporate eco-friendly habits into their daily lives. To encourage you to join them on this journey to reduce the use of one-time plastic, we collated 12 places that offer rebates or incentives if you bring your reusable cup or container!

We all love a little discount, don't we? ;)
