Eating Bananas: Singapore vs the Philippines
Popular vlogger Franco Dubini recently shone the spotlight on the consumption of two countries to talk about the growing problem on plastic pollution.
Franco compared the manner in which two countries consume bananas. Whereas in the Philippines, bananas are sold as is minus extra packaging, in Singapore supermarkets, they are repacked in plastic, which, according to the vlogger is an unnecessary addition to the otherwise biodegradable product.
Franco also shone the spotlight on the plastic consumption practices of the two countries where, in the Philippines, Pinoys have to pay extra for plastic containers, discouraging them from consuming in excess, and plastic straws are also being banned in most parts of the country.
He said that the post was not about showing which country was better but to show what one can learn from the other in the road to sustainability. (ANGEL ONG)
