75,000 People Pledge to Save Water and Fight Climate Action Today
The month-long celebrations for Singapore World Water Day (SWWD) 2018 that kicked off on 3 March ended on a high note last Sunday (1 April) with a total of 75,000 ‘I Save’ pledges collected, surpassing PUB’s initial target of 50,000 pledges by 50%. The “I Save” Pledge is a key outreach initiative at SWWD this year, where the community is encouraged to come forward and pledge to save water by practising the five simple tips at home.

The grand finale SWWD roadshow held at Tiong Bahru Plaza on last weekend (31 March and 1 April) drew a record crowd. Many made a last minute dash to take up the 'I Save' pledge or present their latest utilities bill. The public also learnt more about how to save water through fun games such as the "The Great Water Wally Treasure Hunt", while radio DJs from Class 95, YES 933 and Aunty Lucy were present to engage the crowds with interesting on-stage games and quizzes to help spread the water conservation message.
