    up to us to do what s right We all know the necessary steps to save the Earth but it s just a matter of how willing we are in saving the Earth xian said on 04 August 2010 at 1 00 AM HAHA katy perry FTW and she sang about the weather too cos you re hot and you re cold you re yes then you re no talking about the weather of Singapore lately LOL fionaseah said on 04 August 2010 at 1 18 AM my first impression about songs smacked with the label GREEN is CHEESY but maybe that only applies to local made green songs I m not sure if anyone remembers that 3Rs song recorded by NEA to discourage littering Oh my god those were the corniest thing EVER but yup in order to make songs more impactful to its listeners they should come across as GOOD as songs we hear on the radio I mean whoever listens to trash music anlesytx said on 04 August 2010 at 2 06 AM I believe Green music could be of any genre and it is like a win win situation to me that is First it is something new and original like a masterpiece Second it works like a form of advertising as it collaborates with hot singers like Katy Perry and many more Third people pay for the albums and the profits may most probably go to charities and sorts Lastly some people may enjoy the music and then for all you know everyone starts singing the songs and then the songs will bound to serve as a reminder for everyone to do their job in saving the planet Labeling music as green Effective waltzingmathile said on 05 August 2010 at 11 44 AM I guess

    adjust to the sudden difference in taste but isn t it normal when we try something different from what we usually eat we just have to believe that it is worth it If you tend to have constipation here is another important reason why you should start consuming more fiber in your meals Dietary fiber holds water which makes excrement looser and easier to release Fiber is good for your heart and soul A diet rich in fiber helps prevent heart problems Here are some examples on what you can start eating today because they might just be your type of food 1 Potatoes remember to leave the skin on because a lot of the nutrients and fiber are actually present there 2 PASTA LOVER Make the switch now Wholegrain pasta is definitely the healthier choice The difference in taste is not noticeable plus you feel full much faster which means you will not overeat 3 Go NUTS with well nuts Because Mixed fruit nuts and or seeds are often available in snack sized bags Now that you have learnt so much isn t it time to do something about your diet jittelicious said on 04 August 2010 at 8 44 PM Haha cmo and thelion are definitely know their stuff Many people have the misconception that eating healthy means no carbs and no fat or that it is a diet full of supplements Simply eating a balanced diet of whole natural foods while avoiding processed food is the way to go Avoiding processed food means less pesticide less preservatives and less chemicals in our body Not only will it benefit your body it will benefit the environment as well sptammy said on 05 August 2010 at 12 28 AM According to ABC news Phil Edwards co author of the

    message of going green and we can play the role of explaining to our parents or grandparents the importance of it nad said on 04 August 2010 at 10 52 PM yeah i think ntuc should adopt greener methods like selling recyclable bags or charging the public more than ten cents per plastic bag they require since paying a few cents extra in stores like ikea do not make much of a difference to the publics purses if the bags are charged at a higher price only then will people start to take notice and realize they that it is more cost efficient to bring their own shopping bag pizzamizza said on 04 August 2010 at 11 32 PM SInce it s free why not Just like how we print our stuffs in Studio 19 This does not only happen to people around us but I do believe it happens and IS STILL happening in the whole of Singapore Problem They do not know how these will affect them Solution They need more public education and show them how this green thing is related to them chenxwdawn said on 05 August 2010 at 12 13 AM I agree with the suggestion to start charging people for plastic bags This will make consumers more conscious of the number of plastic bags they re taking using Actually Singapore should look into replacing plastic bags with paper bags when possible True that they cost more but if it s just a few cents maybe the corporations can look into absorbing these costs for the sake of the environment dtyw said on 21 August 2010 at 3 58 PM Perhaps a system could be introduced whereby consumers could be a given a few cents off their total bill if they brought their own bags

    them are starting young It makes me want to go green everyday 2 Comments denzelljy said on 04 August 2010 at 2 25 AM They might start young but it s more of a habit of throwing things into a bin Paper that doesn t go into the right bin ends up not recycled Hopefully schools are teaching them the rationale behind that action When I was younger there were curbs surrounding the mailbox at void decks to toss your junk mail conveniently But I think that was to prevent paper from flying around xinderalla said on 04 August 2010 at 9 35 PM I believe going green should be a lifestyle and what better way to cultivate it from a young age Kids in other countries like japan are trained to separate their waste and they even have a rooster duty in the neighborhood and everyone play a part in ensuring that all the waste are being sort out and recycled accordingly It would be wonderful if the kindergarten start promoting such activities Post your comments Latest Topics CDL s E Gen Challenge E Generation Challenge13 Recycled Stationary Items Deposit refund System Plant Vs Plastic Popular Keyword Tags Environment

    for sale notsosunnily said on 03 August 2010 at 11 50 PM The amount of going green and being environmentally friendly despite being a retailer with a contradicting cause just goes to show that IKEA is more than just a store Are there any other stores as green as them denzelljy said on 04 August 2010 at 2 30 AM I wonder if their foods go through green processes too because many people love their meatballs and hotdogs So it would be an even better move for IKEA to educate us on their food too It would be a greener more wholesome experience Don t you think xinderalla said on 04 August 2010 at 9 46 PM Yes their restaurant send their food waste to farms as fertilizer It is heartening to see them playing their part in all area to save the environment annabellaftw said on 04 August 2010 at 11 27 PM IKEA is a store which has constantly proved itself to be consumer friendly employee friendly and now environmentally friendly What is it that IKEA can t do As a furniture store they contribute to the destruction of the environment However what makes IKEA different is that they choose and make a conscious effort to give back to the environment As seen above IKEA has tried to implement environmentally friendly actions in all areas of their services Indeed it is extremely commendable of IKEA to provide such services camellialimxinyi said on 16 August 2010 at 2 51 PM I am actually a big fan of IKEA too as much as I love their meatballs I also love the fact that they do recognize and will put in the effort to maintain their corporate social responsibility and also do their part to save the Earth Most companies are

    ignorant on their part in saving the Earth However I feel that there are also people among us who could not be bothered and couldn t care less to do something for the planet I feel that as humans we often neglect and ignore things that do not affect and concern us Understanding this fact I feel that as long as global warming is not affecting us in a major scale Singaporeans will procrastinate the need to go green The most effective measure to encourage Singaporeans to go green is by government intervention Government bodies can pass laws to encourage Singaporeans to not throw unnecessary items in the recycling bins If they were to do so the government will probably have to impose some form of penalty for them As mentioned earlier if an issue is affecting us fines for example we ve got to do something about it softbunlet said on 04 August 2010 at 8 07 AM I think one big problem is that people still do not have sufficient education and awareness on the specifics of going green For example do you know that cardboard can be recycled but preferably not together with other paper Office grade white paper can be recycled into higher grade paper whilst cardboard and newspapers yield lower quality paper Mixing them creates wastage of resources by yielding an overall lower quality paper pizzamizza said on 04 August 2010 at 11 42 PM With all the raising awareness by all these campaigns that have been going on how can we say that they are not aware of the purpose of those recycle bins They existed ever since we were young The main problem is that they couldn t be bothered to sort their trash out and treat it like many other rubbish bin
