• Coming Together to Save Our Oceans

    Coming Together to Save Our Oceans

    Attention all beer lovers, homegrown brewery Lion Brewery Co, is excited to announce their limited edition beer, Can’t Sea Straight, in partnership with Seven Clean Seas. Seven Clean Seas is a dedicated organization focused on combating ocean plastic waste. With every purchase of a can or pint of Lion Brewery Co’s Can’t Sea Straight, 50g of plastic will be responsibly extracted from our oceans through a Seven Clean Seas initiative. This remarkable effort equates to the removal of 5 PET water bottles per can or pint sold, contributing to a cleaner marine ecosystem.

    Get ready for an exciting beer extravaganza! Mark your calendars for the spectacular launch of the beer on July 1, 2023, accompanied by an epic launch party at the fabulous Thirty-Six Brewlab, hosted by the incredible Lion Brewery Co. But that’s not all – this beer is on a mission to tackle plastic waste head-on! By selling their delicious brew, they aim to remove a whopping 400 to 500 kilograms of plastic from our precious oceans.

    The timing couldn’t be more perfect. Just in time for Plastic Free July, a global movement that unites millions of people around the world in their passionate quest to reduce plastic pollution. Lion Brewery Co’s brew is like an irresistible aperitif, perfect for any time of the day. Picture yourself indulging in this easy-to-love ale, featuring an exquisite blend of hops that will tantalize your taste buds and leave you feeling refreshed.

    Through this extraordinary collaboration, Lion Brewery Co aims to shine a light on the dire state of our oceans and inspire everyone to act. And it all begins with that very first sip.

    “We are thrilled to be partnering with Seven Clean Seas for this initiative. Since our inception, Lion Brewery Co has always been committed to protecting the environment. Our sustainability practices are not perfect, but we continually try to be better. This collaboration is something that excites us and compliments our current ‘one keg, one tree’ program, where we plant a tree for every keg we sell in Singapore,” says Will Julius, co-founder of the local brewery.

    At Seven Clean Seas, transparency and accountability are at the core of their mission to rid the environment of plastic. They leave no room for doubt when it comes to the accuracy and legitimacy of their plastic collection efforts. That’s why they make it a priority to obtain third-party certifications from esteemed organizations like Verra and Ocean-Bound Plastic Standards for all their projects. These certifications serve as a seal of approval, ensuring that the best practices are followed and that the measurement and reporting of plastic removal efforts reflect the true picture.

    Once the plastic is gathered from the environment, it undergoes a thorough cleaning and sorting process before embarking on its journey to its final destination, where it reaches its End-of-Life stage. While a portion of the collected plastic, such as PET, HDPE, and PP, can be recycled, unfortunately, this only represents a small fraction of what is recovered. The majority of the plastic material is of extremely poor quality due to degradation, rendering it unsuitable for recycling. This stark reality highlights the challenges associated with achieving plastic circularity and emphasizes the utmost importance of minimizing our reliance on plastics whenever and wherever possible.

    “Seven Clean Seas was founded in Singapore and has partnered with the likes of Marina Bay Sands, but this is the first collaboration of its kind in Southeast Asia. We are excited to partner with Lion Brewery Co, and we hope to spark discourse over the importance of removing plastics from our seas over a pint of Can’t Sea Straight. We are eager to build a community of individuals committed to challenging the status quo, getting involved, and cleaning the seas,” shares Tom Peacock-Nazil, Chief Executive Officer of Seven Clean Seas.

    Can’t Sea Straight will be available on tap at Thirty Six Brewlab by Lion Brewery Co or on Lion Brewery Co’s website, while stocks last. Each pint is priced at S$13.20++ during happy hour and S$16.50++ outside of happy hour. Additionally, a case of 24 cans retails at S$120++ on Lion Brewery Co’s website.

  • Get Ready for a Sustainable Summer with UNIQLO and Doraemon!

    Get Ready for a Sustainable Summer with UNIQLO and Doraemon!

    Are you passionate about sustainability and love the adorable Doraemon? Well, get ready because on Monday, June 5, UNIQLO is launching a fantastic range of newly designed, 100% recycled polyester products. This exciting collection includes T-shirts and a pocketable bag featuring none other than UNIQLO’s Global Sustainability Ambassador, Doraemon, in his green ‘Sustainability Mode’ appearance.

    To make this launch even more special, these products will be released to coincide with World Environment Day and the start of the summer 2023 round of JOIN: THE POWER OF CLOTHING. This global UNIQLO campaign aims to encourage customers like you to participate in sustainability activities and make a positive impact on our planet.

    But that’s not all! As part of the JOIN campaign, UNIQLO is implementing a donation element in 23 countries, including Japan and a number of other nations. From June 5 (Monday) to July 4 (Tuesday), a selected range of new Doraemon Sustainability Mode products, such as the MENS and KIDS DRY-EX T-shirts partially made from recycled polyester, will be pegged to donations.

    In Japan and several other countries, UNIQLO will donate up to US$1 million to the Asia-Pacific Cultural Centre for UNESCO (ACCU). This generous contribution will be used for educational programs aimed at teaching children about the problem of ocean pollution. It’s an incredible initiative that will help raise awareness and foster a sense of responsibility among the younger generation.

    In Singapore, UNIQLO is partnering with the Garden City Fund, a registered charity and IPC established by the National Parks Board. UNIQLO will donate S$50,000 to support the Plant-A-Coral, Seed-A-Reef program. Last year, the S$20,000 donation enabled the conservation of coral nubbins, small coral fragments grown in a nursery on St John’s Island. These nubbins were then transplanted onto Reef Enhancement Units (REUs) placed in suitable reef zones. The REUs provide a safe haven for marine biodiversity, including nudibranchs, crabs, shrimps, and fishes, thereby improving the biodiversity of Sisters’ Islands Marine Park’s reefs.

    Hwee Lee, Senior Director of Sustainability at UNIQLO Singapore, expressed their commitment to addressing plastic waste issues in our waters and ecosystems. The JOIN campaign has already organized eight Kayak Clean-up sessions with customers in Kallang River, starting from Earth Day in April. These sessions aimed to raise awareness about plastic waste finding its way into our waterways. Now, UNIQLO is taking their action a step further by donating to valuable efforts that support Singapore’s marine biodiversity, particularly the protection of coral reefs, which are known as the rainforests of the sea and our natural heritage.

    To engage customers like you in environmental contribution and create a better world, UNIQLO Singapore, in partnership with the Garden City Fund, is organizing an exclusive guided tour on St John’s Island. Customers will have the opportunity to explore the island’s beauty and learn about its coral reefs. Additionally, there will be a Coral Lab workshop for UNIQLO employees, enabling them to gain a deeper understanding of how Singapore nurtures its coral reefs in the Southern islands.

    But the JOIN campaign isn’t limited to Singapore alone. UNIQLO Malaysia and UNIQLO Indonesia are also actively raising awareness about plastic litter in the water. They are organizing inclusive activities for customers, such as cleaning the historic Melaka River, a vital trade route during the heyday of the Melakan sultanate in the 15th century. Furthermore, there will be a beach clean-up and coral transplantation at Bali’s Tulamben beach on the northeastern side of the island. These activities aim to highlight the importance of protecting our natural treasures and preserving the beauty of our oceans.

    Exciting, isn’t it? You can find the incredible Doraemon Sustainability Mode, MENS, and KID DRY-EX products at UNIQLO stores throughout Singapore and online. So, get ready to embrace a sustainable summer with UNIQLO and Doraemon. Join the movement, make a difference, and look fabulous while doing it!

    Taipei Restaurant Dishes Up Giant Isopod Noodles for Adventurous Patrons

    A ramen restaurant in Taipei has introduced a new dish that features a remarkable 14-legged giant isopod, attracting crowds of people eager to capture photos and savor a taste of this unique noodle bowl. Ever since ‘The Ramen Boy’ unveiled this limited-edition creation on May 22, proclaiming their accomplishment of acquiring the “dream ingredient,” over a hundred individuals have eagerly signed up on a waiting list to experience the culinary delights of this restaurant.

    “It is so attractive because of its appearance – it looks very cute,” said the 37-year-old owner of the restaurant, who wanted to be identified only as Mr. Hu, as he held up a giant isopod while customers took pictures.

    “As for the cooking method, we use the simplest way, steam, so there is no difficulty to process it.”

    The restaurant prepares the giant isopod by steaming it for 10 minutes, then delicately placing it atop a bowl of ramen filled with rich chicken and fish broth. Each serving of this extraordinary dish is priced at 1,480 Taiwan dollars ($48).

    According to a customer, the meat of the giant isopod possesses a unique flavor reminiscent of a combination of crab and lobster, characterized by its dense texture and a slight chewiness.

    Among the crustacean family, giant isopods stand out as the largest members, as described by the NOAA Ocean Exploration on their website. These fascinating creatures, distant relatives of crabs and prawns, typically inhabit depths ranging from 170 to 2,140 meters (186 to 2,340 yards) below the ocean surface. Taiwan’s Animal Planet shared on its Facebook page that approximately 80% of these isopods reside at depths of 365 to 730 meters.

    A Taiwanese expert identified the specific species as “Bathynomus jamesi,” discovered near the Dongsha islands in the South China Sea. It is believed that they are caught at depths between 300 and 500 meters.

    Since the introduction of this unique ramen dish, some experts and scholars have expressed concerns regarding the potential ecological impact resulting from bottom trawling fishing techniques, as well as possible health risks associated with consuming these creatures.

    “If it’s just a special menu, and the giant isopods were caught unintentionally like the restaurant owner says they were, everyone should try it if they get a chance,” said 34-year-old Digell Huang, who works as a genetic counsellor.

    “I am very honoured to have this opportunity to taste it,” she added as she ate from a bowl of the isopod-topped noodle.

    However, a cautionary note has been sounded by a scholar regarding potential health risks associated with consuming the giant isopod, primarily due to the fact that this species is relatively unfamiliar and limited data is available. It is possible that the isopod, such as the ‘Bathynomus jamesi,’ could contain toxins or heavy metals like mercury.

    Huang Ming-chih, an associate professor specializing in deep-sea invertebrates and biotechnology at the National University of Tainan, emphasized the lack of substantial information on the ‘Bathynomus jamesi’ species, which was officially recognized in Taiwan just last year.
