The Wider Image: Families around the world join war on plastic
A combination photo shows Audrey Gan (C), 31, her husband Leow Yee Shiang, 30, and their three-year-old son Kyler (top) and one week's worth of plastic waste they have collected, in Singapore, May 21, 2018. "We started being more aware of the waste generated by our household when it was highlighted to us in our Buddhist teachings...that all this plastic waste is harming other beings on earth," said Audrey. "We try to curb our desire to shop for new and unnecessary items. If we are really craving for a drink of bubble tea, we bring our own containers to avoid the plastic cup and straw they come in. I use a cloth diaper for Kyler once he reaches home, but we use at least one disposable a day because we haven't figured out how to avoid leaks with cloth diapers overnight."
