We know that Singapore and Malaysia are used to bantering when it comes to water resources. But now, according to their government, Singaporeans can now start consuming water from their own taps.

As reported by Channel News Asia, Masagos Zulkifli, the Singaporean Minister of Environment and Water Resources (MEWR), announced his ministry’s complete support for any initiative that would reduce the consumption of bottled water in the country, in line with Singapore’s Zero Waste Masterplan.

“According to the latest figures compiled by the Singapore Food Agency, we import about 17 million bottles of water per month from Malaysia alone,” he said.

He also assured the public that the tap water in Singapore is perfectly safe to drink, thus giving them more reason to put a stop to their bottled water consumption addiction.

Recently, our Prime Minister, Dr Mahathir Mohamad was bewildered by Singapore’s rejection of his idea to building a connecting bridge from Malaysia to Singapore even when Malaysia was willing to support Singapore by providing a cheap water supply.

According to The Star, Mahathir even said that the state of Johor was being more generous with Singapore than it was with Melaka. “We are subsidising the people and the government of Singapore but Johor sells Melaka water at 50 cents.” he reportedly said.

Meanwhile, Singapore continues to focus on being independent. The nation was urged by Mr Masagos to reduce plastic bottle consumption and use water dispensers and reusable cups.

Buying bottled water may be convenient but hey, if carrying your own bottle will help you save some money and the environment, then why not give it a shot.
