In response to these measures, a member of the public, Mr Jimmy Wong, took to Facebook on Saturday (April 4) to encourage everyone to invest in tiffin carriers and to be mindful of one’s carbon footprint during the one month of takeaways. “Can you imagine the amount of styrofoam boxes and plastic bags to be used?” he pointed out.
