Being eco-conscious means that an individual acts in a way that shows concern for the environment.* Our team was curious as to how Singaporeans see themselves in regards to an individual’s effect on the Earth, global warming and other environmental issues we face in the current times. Is it a legitimate concern, or a hoax as some people decreed.

How likely are you to consider yourself to be eco-conscious?

Eco-consciousness in Singapore

It’s encouraging to see that the majority of our panelists do consider themselves to be somewhat eco-conscious. While there is also a good amount of users who are neutral, it’s much higher than the amount of users who consider themselves to not eco-conscious.

Some of the comments of the users who said they aren’t eco-conscious:

  • Too busy with everything else.
  • Can’t be bothered.
  • Our actions will not affect anything about the environment.
  • Don’t have a recycling habit.

In a separate question, we asked our panelists how significant an individual’s eco-conscious acts are:

Results line up with our previous question, with a good amount agreeing that it’s somewhat to extremely significant for an individual to be eco-conscious.

In our final section, we’re exploring the conception of whether our panelists think Singaporeans are generally eco-conscious.
