With our world leaders at the COP24, the world’s fate lies in their hands whether they like it or not. But hey, that doesn’t mean we can’t do our part. Check out the latest news on what’s happening about sustainability all over the world in this week’s Conscious Scoop.


1. Global carbon emissions to jump to an all-time high in 2018

While the current Paris Agreement calls for nations to limit global warming to 3 degrees celsius, even a rise of 1.5 degrees Celsius is going to be disastrous for many. We’ve seen the freak typhoons, massive droughts, extreme weather events – need I say more? There’s been a lot of talk about catastrophic events on Earth, so what can we do?

Let’s get to action people!


2. Go green with North Face for winter!

Going somewhere cold this winter and looking for a new coat? The North Face is joining other brands and going green by launching a line made from recycled plastics. Each jacket removes at least 5 bottles from the landfills and is insulated with 100% polyester. Sounds amazing, but remember to only buy what you need! Want to know how else to dress fashionably sustainable this festive season? We got you covered.

Go green this winter, the world needs you!


3. Australia’s plastic consumption reduced by 80% following supermarket ban

Large supermarkets like Coles and Woolsworth have stopped distributing plastic bags since late July and the consumption of single-use plastic bags has dropped by 80%. This move also inspired small businesses to be environmental stewards themselves, Plus, Australia is legislated to phase out single-use bags in every state (except NSW) in time to come.

Singapore, when will we step it up?


4. Eating less meat with 4Fingers & Quorn

Yup, the collaboration we’ve all been waiting for. We know it’s rather hard to go plant-based sometimes but we’re here to help. Here are some tips and tricks to going plant-based this Christmas (SG & HK!). Also, check out our friends at ABillionVeg to help you hit your less-meat targets in Singapore!

BRB, running over to get my chickless nuggets!


5. Chanel goes fur-less.

Who said fashion can’t be ethical. International brand, Chanel, has decided to stop producing garments and accessories made from animal fur- which includes leathery skins from exotic animals like crocodile and snakes.

Time to make cruelty-free the new avant-garde.

She hopes that by the time she graduates, she can help herself and her community leave green footsteps on this Earth we call home.
