Singapore National Day Parade 2019 to Feature Reusable Items

This year, Singapore’s National Day Parade (NDP) ‘funpacks’ will include practical and reusable items to encourage more sustainable practices. Each funpack will include a 750ml sports water bottle with a spout, instead of two bottles of water, and reusable bamboo drinking straws that can be used as clappers during the parade. The inclusion of these reusable items is in support of local campaigns "Say YES to Waste Less" and "Year Towards Zero Waste". The funpack will also have a water-resistant lining and adjustable straps, allowing it to be carried as a backpack or sling bag. According to chairman of the NDP 2019 logistics and finance committee, Military Expert (ME) 6 Ignatius Tham, the committee “wanted to do something (to) promote reuse so that people can continue to use the bag long after the NDP celebrations.” Unused ponchos and LED wristbands will also be collected at the end of each rehearsal and preview to be given out at the next one as part of the parade's sustainability efforts.
