08 Oct 2019EXPLOREBY SweetEscape

With modernization comes the downsides too. Sometimes we can’t help it, because our daily lives are surrounded by consumerism which results in waste disposal. On top of that, we are required to work for our survival, and for many of us, it means commuting from our homes to another area that could be near or far. In the case of a farther commute, we would often consort to the use of vehicles to take us places. The issue with that is... it causes our environment to slowly deteriorate due to all the waste and pollution that are, well, man-made! SweetEscape is positive that you care about your environment as well. If you need a little motivation to get yourself going to help maintain your environment, here are 6 awesome places for you to get inspired!

If you’ve ever been to Singapore, then you’re probably aware of the many strict rules and fines given by the government that are associated with maintaining the city’s cleanliness. Tourist or local, even throwing a piece of gum wrapper would get you fined - and no, we aren’t kidding at all! And what you should keep in mind is that Singapore isn’t a clean city… it’s a cleaned city, thanks to all of their registered cleaners in the National Environment Agency and the government’s method of disciplining the people.
