Ms. Jocelyn Teo, assistant manager of sustainability at IKEA Singapore, said:
“We wanted to encourage sustainable life in schools and saw this as a great opportunity to teach kids about minimising waste.”
To Tampines North Primary School it is important that the children learn that they can do their own part to save the environment.
And the pupils seem to like the idea, Simran Kaur, a seven old year pupil said:
“I love my new lunchbox. It helps me keep Singapore clean because I can use it again and again.”
