Trade-in used plastic bottles for food at Tiong Bahru market on Sep 15

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure; and in this case, comforting hawker food. And our street food is about to get a lot more satisfying this September, as the recently gentrified Tiong Bahru market will be teaming up with WWF Singapore to spread the importance of plastic recycling.

For one day only, get to exchange used plastic bottles for vouchers that value 50 cents each to be used at the various hawker stalls. All you have to do is collect rinsed disposable bottles, present them at the WWF booth at Tiong Bahru market to receive your food coupons, and you’re ready to order up a feast.

Each plastic bottle is exchangable for one 50 cents coupon; a maximum worth of food coupons redeemable stands at $5. For even further discounts, bring your own reusable container to take an additional dollar off your meal.

So unleash your inner auntie/uncle instincts and start collecting bottles for a cheap/free meal next month, all in the name of environmental consciousness.

Pay with Plastic at Tiong Bahru Market happens Sep 15 from 8am-6pm at Tiong Bahru market
