GrabHitch this World Environment Day

<b></b><span style=”font-weight: 400″>Did you know that the average Singaporean </span><span style=”font-weight: 400″>spends 87 hours each year getting stuck in traffic? Well, this World Environment Day (5</span><span style=”font-weight: 400″>th</span><span style=”font-weight: 400″> June), take the opportunity to avoid being part of the statistic by ride-sharing through <a href=”https://www.grab.com/sg/driver/hitch/” target=”_blank”>GrabHitch</a>! </span><span style=”font-weight: 400″>Perhaps you might be thinking “It’s not my thing”, or even “Why should I?” </span>

<span style=”font-weight: 400″>Here are two good reasons for giving <a href=”https://www.grab.com/sg/driver/hitch/” target=”_blank”>GrabHitch</a> a go:</span>

<span style=”font-weight: 400″>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.</span>

<span style=”font-weight: 400″>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. </span>

<span style=”font-weight: 400″>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. </span><span style=”font-weight: 400″>GrabHitch or get hitched!</span>

COVID-19 has dealt an unprecedented blow to the tourism industry, affecting the livelihoods of millions of workers. One of them was Komsan, an assistant chef in a luxury hotel based in the Srinakarin area.

As the number of tourists at the hotel plunged, he decided to sign up as a GrabFood delivery-partner to earn an alternative income. Soon after, the hotel ceased operations.

Komsan has viewed this change through an optimistic lens, calling it the perfect opportunity for him to embark on a fresh journey after his previous job. Aside from GrabFood deliveries, he now also picks up GrabExpress jobs. It can get tiring, having to shuttle between different locations, but Komsan finds it exciting. And mostly, he’s glad to get his income back on track.
