The End of Dabao

Dabao or "takeaway box" is henceforth banned in Singapore. It is the end of dabao as we know it.

According to the latest statistics, the amount of waste that Singapore produces is staggering. As crazy as it is, the ban on chewing gum worked; Singapore kicked the gum habit and cinema seats were suddenly clean again.

If we do indeed live in a land of extreme measures, would it take an accident caused by plastic or Styrofoam to make Singapore more aware of the devastating effects these materials have on Mother Earth?

How would the government react?

Is there an immediate need for a “Da Bao Prohibition”?
