The Lunar New Year is just around the corner! Preparations are almost done, everyone’s got their new ‘fits and ready to roll in the year of the pig.
As excited as we are, we can’t help but wonder if there are ways that we celebrate while being more conscious for our environment.
We’ve compiled some simple things you can opt for to not only make it an auspicious new year but also an environmentally friendly one!
Avoid Using Glue On Angpau Packets
Opt for slot-in packets! This way, you’ll avoid tearing the packet when excitedly opening it up and you’ll even be able to reuse it. If you really have no access to slot-in packets, instead of gluing the top, opt to just slip in the cover.
