The world has a waste problem and it’s snowballing. Globally, the volume of waste exceeds 2 billion tonnes every year. Singapore alone generated 7.23 million tonnes of solid waste in 2019, enough to fill more than 14,000 Olympic-sized swimming pools.
The numbers are daunting but what if a little trouble on our part can make a big difference? Filled with sustainable alternatives to everyday items that may be more bothersome to use yet better for the Earth, The [Not-So] Convenience Store gently nudges us away from the culture of convenience and its resultant waste.
First commissioned by Temasek Shophouse in 2019, this sophomore edition of the store will be at National Design Centre for a 9-week run.
Venue: National Design Centre, Pop-up Gallery, Level 1 (#01-01)
When: 25 Jan - 30 Mar 2021, 9am - 9pm
