Did you know that the average Singaporean spends 87 hours each year getting stuck in traffic? Well, this World Environment Day (5th June), take the opportunity to avoid being part of the statistic by ride-sharing through GrabHitch! Perhaps you might be thinking “It’s not my thing”, or even “Why should I?”
Here are two good reasons for giving GrabHitch a go:
First, it’s for Mother Earth! She’s given so much so maybe we should also start giving back by putting less stress on her and our ecosystem. As it is, the average Singaporean produces 698.62kg of CO2 every year so this simple ECO Action will really help reduce carbon emissions.
Second, you can widen your social circle! Our online world is steadily disconnecting people and that can be unhealthy for many folks. Through sharing your ride, you will meet other people that bring with them very different perspective on things and life.
So, get out of your comfort zone and meet your next best friend. You never know what you’re going get when you do your part for the environment. GrabHitch or get hitched!
Do you want to get started? Sign up as a Driver using referral code “hitchforearth” and complete just 1 ride by 30th June to receive 1 ticket ($20 value) to the Cooled Conservatories at Gardens by the Bay.
While you do that, make sure you visit ECO Singapore’s Facebook page to find out more about environmental conservation efforts in Singapore, as well as their ECO Leaders initiative which aims to help young Singaporeans become more environmentally conscious through impactful actions!
