Singaporean students do their bit for their local coffee shop washroom
Several Singaporean students have adopted their local coffee shop washroom as part of a project initiated by the Public Hygiene Council, to promote hygiene in public washrooms.
According to the Channel News Asia report, the students, from Dunman High School's Environment Club, have spent the past few months keeping the washroom clean. They have also created posters and tissue paper packet designs, all for the purpose of raising awareness of the need for patrons to leave this – and other – washrooms as clean as they found them.
Their efforts seem to be paying off, as the owners of the coffee shop, which is on the Tanjong Katong Road, say that the washroom’s users are now being more considerate.
"The public toilets in Singapore are not very clean, especially coffee shop toilets,” participating student Mah Looi Han, told Channel News Asia. “You see a lot of flies and water with a lot of mud and dirt. We feel it's very unhygienic, and we want to take up this project to improve the quality of public toilets."
