I hope you aren’t the one leaving those trash behind. We learned this since young in school and at home, and we have been clearing our own tables after meals, knowing very well we should all play a part in keeping our environment clean and usable by others. So why aren’t we doing the same in the cinema? Is it cause its just too dark and you think on one will know who did it?
Did you know?
11,830 man hours are spent cleaning up 109,000 kg of trash in the cinema
Hence this has led Golden Village to launch a campaign to encourage responsible cinema viewing with Just Bin It. Cinema goers are encouraged to properly dispose their trash in rubbish bins, instead of leaving them behind in their seats. By properly disposing your rubbish, you ensure that other people will enjoy their cinema viewing experience.
So the next time you step out of the cinema after your show, don’t forget to – Just Bin It! Catch this short clip before movie time at all GV cinemas in January 2016.
Now we can have more time to fly and enjoy a holiday in 2015 cos this agency is extending a promotion till the 27th month in Singapore. Woohoo! But seriously, if this was in the English paper, the error probably can be forgiven cos we do have dates displayed as YYYY.DD.MM. But this with the Chinese characters and all, such mistake cannot leh.
