Global warming is getting worse and climate change is a very real problem, though President Donald Trump might claim otherwise. By taking baby steps such as tackling our own consumption – overconsumption, to be precise – we can help reduce the spread of these problems.
Practicing the three R’s is still very important but it’s kind of passé. After all, everyone’s familiar with it already. But, how about upcycling?
If you’re clueless about the concept of upcycling, you really should head down to the upcoming UP Fest 2018.
UP Fest 2018 is Singapore’s first ever family upcycling festival that promises an educational and fun experience for all ages!
Participants can attend workshops to better understand what upcycling is while gaining a useful skill like woodworking. Or, learn how to upcycle from the comforts of home through composting lessons and learning to make your own co-enzyme.
Besides these workshops, keep a lookout for exciting installations like a Giant Ball Pit and a Bouncy Castle. Performances by Singapore Chinese Girls’ School and Cairnhill are also guaranteed to keep you entertained.
RSVP before 3 March in order to receive a free upcycling starter kit at the entrance!
Lastly, remember to bring your own reusables to enjoy free food and coffee from Bettr Barista. Food and drinks are available at the venue but to encourage zero-waste, participants will have to pay for disposable cutlery.
Come on friends, don’t be a Donald Trump.
Date & Time: 3 March 2018, 3pm – 7pm
