Happy International Plastic Bag Free Day!

SPARK recently had the opportunity to present its ideas on the petrol kiosks on two Urban Land Institute (ULI) events. The first in Hong Kong and the second in Shanghai.

As the world’s developed countries begin to move away from petrol and diesel fuelled cars to electric vehicles, the petrol kiosks of Singapore and Shanghai will need to adapt to new roles. SPARK proposed using this valuable real estate resource for a variety of functions that could provide new facilities and resources to the community. The objective is to enrich the typically mundane everyday life cycle of the neighbourhood. SPARK proposed a myriad of petrol kiosk retrofits including a waste plastic bag recycling facility. Happy plastic bag free day from all of us at SPARK!

SPARK’s ongoing research into the future of the petrol kiosk will be published on Earth Hour Day Spring 2019.
