“Sustainable Renovation” is smart budgeting for tomorrow! [Chills 111 ft Solar AI, Tingkat & Gush]
Sustainability has become a fashionable idea, everything seems to need to be aligned with it, and sometimes it feels a little much. But did you realize that the wet market is already a very sustainable system? Where is the packaging? So it seems, maybe being sustainable is not always about moving forward and embracing new ideas but looking back and wondering, is there a way to live well without hurting our planet?
Today we focus on renovation. A big step forward for young couples in Singapore. While many are renovating, the 2 extremes are “this is my home, we must use the best” and “we just spent a lot on the home, maybe we want to avoid a renovation loan?”But is there a sweet spot between the 2 extremes that lets us live comfortably, sustainably and cost-friendly?
Joining us today are Start-up founders, Bolong Chew from Solar AI, Lester Leong from “the very expensive paint company” GUSH and Corporate Sustainability Advisor Pamela from Tingkats.sg!
