The Bubble Tea BINGO challenge went viral on Facebook recently. In fact, the bubble tea craze has become insane, especially among the millennials. Little did we realise, this craze contributes to the most serious issue affecting the world today.

The Damage Left Behind

While people are queuing up for the Instagrammable bubble tea, how many of us care about what happens to all the non-biodegradable plastic cups? Indeed, plastic pollution can afflict land, waterways and oceans as they are slow or almost never degrade. Some researchers suggest that by 2050 there could be more plastic than fish in the oceans by weight. Humans are also affected by plastic pollution, such as through disruption of various hormonal mechanisms. And how about art and climate action?

A World Without Waste

By being kind to the environment, not only do we create a sustainable world, but also save us a lot of money. It is the time for us to live consciously and begin thinking about the environment more before it is too late. So, think before you buy another bubble tea next time. Opt for straw-less lids, bring your metal straws or use reusable cup.

Art and Climate Action

Despite the growing evidence of climate change and humankind as the driver of that change, many people do not care about it. The main reason is because they do not perceive it as a risk or threat to themselves. No matter how solid the scientific information are, they are unable to persuade our people of the reality of climate change. Therefore, art and climate action is the best combination for the solution.
