Electrolux Singapore aims to highlight the very real issue of marine debris and its impact on marine life and the environment around the world through a special exhibition of the “Vacs from the Sea” vacuum cleaners, and a “Dreaming of a Greener Singapore” drawing competition.
These vacuum cleaners are designed to include fragments of bottles, drink cans, beach toys, bottle caps, plastic and other things gathered from the shores of the Pacific and Indian Oceans and the North, Mediterranean and the Baltic Seas. Each vacuum cleaner represents the sea or ocean from which the fragments were taken.
They also demonstrate the eco-friendly home appliances manufacturer commitment to a greener living. The “Vacs from the Sea” collection will showcase three of these five unique vacuum cleaners in Singapore in September.
“A green conscience is a clean conscience,” says Koh Soh Hoie, General Manager for Electrolux Singapore and Malaysia.
