Hi Tiffany,

Honestly, I love Nat Geo and Discovery Channel. I recently stumbled upon one of channels and found them doing this programme on environment.

Basically, a bunch of dudes went travelling around America on a bus running on vegetable oil, seeking green innovations by people trying to preserve the environment.

I can't remember the exact timing, nor the exact channel, but I do know it's shown on the weekend (either Saturday or Sunday, got to check the schedule on this one). Hope you catch it.

That's right. We gotta do our part, and that's a heck of a lot more than just mouthing sleek advertising slogans.

Why can't I get the admin people at my condo to care about us separating our garbage? What do they know that I don't know?

Hi Weiren,

Thanks for the tip! I'll definitely watch out for that program when i'm tuning in to Nat Geo, or DC for that matter.

I know that there was news about taxis in Singapore switching to using cleaner fuel and that there was going to be a gas station somewhere on the faraway side of our island that supplies this fuel. But this news came like 2 years ago, and pardon my ignorance, but I have yet to hear any updates on whether it has successful or whether they will start implementing it for all vehicles.

Do you happen to know what has happened?

Hi Brad,

Yes, I truly believe that if everyone just does their part, it can definitely make a difference.

Sometimes, people might just be lazy. "Why make things difficult for myself?" they would say to themselves. And no, i'm not saying that they are self-centred people. But if they could just take a step back and look at this issue as a whole, they'd realise that all it takes it just that little extra effort.

Have they set up bins that classify garbage at the lift lobbies?

Could it be that the admin people have not educated themselves or that they feel that one voice is not enough to spark a change?
