The real deal

Now that I’ve introduced you to the Singapore skyline, I thought I’d introduce you to some other facts about Singapore. I’ve got a total of 99 facts which you’ll be able to download soon, but I’ll just try to slip in a couple every once in awhile when you’re not looking.

Fact #13:

Thirteen (13) recycling stations along Orchard Road, owned by the National Environment Agency, will be redesigned to include ideas and tips to encourage proper use of the stations. Some examples of these ‘eco ideas’ are, how recycling one tonne (1,000 kg) of paper can help save 17 trees, and the recycling of one aluminum can save enough energy to light up a 100W bulb for three and a half hours.

This is part of Panasonic’s partnership with SYOGOC to drive environmental awareness and inculcate environmentally-friendly practices among athletes, Singaporeans and visitors to the Games, under the YOG Environment Programme.

Bet you didn’t know that!
