The iconic Marina Bay is holding an event of sorts at the Waterfront Promenade until Sunday, the 25th of March. This year the focus is on plastic and how the excessive use of it is harming the planet. Eco-friendly businesses like VeganBurg and Charles & Keith should keep you company as you shop at the Earth Hour Marketplace, while a line-up of performances will have you entertained. Don’t forget to use the official hashtag #uselessplastic (that’s use less plastic, not useless plastic).
