A SINGAPORE PERSPECTIVE ON PLASTICS AND THE OPPORTUNITY FOR BRANDS TO DRIVE CHANGE

As a small country of just 725 km2 and a population of over 5.6 million people, Singapore is one of the most densely populated countries in the world. Singapore is a developed country, with the 7th highest GDP per capita, where plastic bags and other single-use plastics have become cheaply and widely available. For more than three decades, retailers and eateries have offered plastic bags, containers and disposable cutlery at no extra charge to
their customers, making single-use plastic part and parcel of the fast-paced urban Singapore lifestyle.
