We love making games – it’s what makes our lives fabulous!
We are quite thankful for the environment we live in, as our health is closely tied to the health of where we live. As Bards, it is our duty to cherish and protect the Earth, with the same passion as we have for making games! When we see the Earth is polluted, it makes us unable to fully enjoy our lives and look to bright futures.
In recent years plastic pollution, aka “white pollution”, has become a severe environmental issue. So called “disposable” plastic wrappers and utensils are actually very long lived; that plastic straw you used for 5 minutes at MOS Burger can remain polluting the ecosystem for the next 500 years. That is more than 100,000 times longer than you used it for! Crazy!
Recycling should be enough, right? Unfortunately worldwide only around 18% plastics actually end up getting recycled into new products. Even in Taiwan, a famous example of responsible and efficient public recycling systems, around 200 million PET (polyethylene terephthalate) plastic bottles alone end up in landfills or in the environment, instead of being recycled.
Last year, typhoon Mangkhut brought with it strong winds, lots of rain, and… a huge amount of plastic garbage! The ocean has become heavily polluted with plastic trash, and the typhoon brought huge amounts of it back home – washing ashore tons of plastic trash on our streets and beaches.
So, what can be done? Carry reusable bags and cups, reduce (or eliminate) plastic bag usage, purchase unpackaged bulk groceries and produce, recycle as much as possible (no cheating on trash day), and stop using plastic straws! These are super easy ways to help save the planet, and are methods actively supported by governments around the world.
Here at NeoBards, quality and dedication are our core values. This extends to a dedication to our environment, working to improve our community and the environment. For a better future for all, NeoBards must also be ECO- Bards!
This year, we choose to help by replacing disposable plastic straws with reusable stainless steel straws. All Bards received a set of 3 different straws along with a cleaning brush. We start our eco quest by providing an essential tool for our teas and coffees. Say no to plastic straws!
Small actions, strong determination!
“Making games that matter” is our passion, being eco-friendly is our way of life!
