Order something from our online store and you may be surprised by what shows up on your doorstep: a not-so-pretty cardboard box, slightly worn and clearly used, possibly wearing a label from another company. While many online retailers take great care in packaging their products in a brand-centric, aesthetically-pleasing box, The Social Space is thinking in a different way: why use a new box when you can reuse an old one?
As part of our efforts to reduce waste and create a circular economy, all online orders will be packed using only second-hand, post-consumer and/or upcycled material, such as reused carton boxes, poly-mailers, envelopes, paper/plastic bags or bubble wrap.
According to NEA, packaging waste makes up about one-third of domestic waste disposed in Singapore. It is therefore one of the key priority waste streams identified in the Zero Waste Masterplan that we will need to focus our efforts on to close the resource loop and to help Singapore achieve its goal of becoming a Zero Waste Nation.
