Coliving: Where Community Meets Sustainability

Adios to the traditional notion of living solo in a stuffy, sad apartment. Coliving is all about fostering a sense of community while reducing your environmental footprint. Think modern and lively communal areas, like-minded flatmates and a commitment to living sustainability - sounds like a win-win to us! 

Coliving Essentials

  • Shared Spaces: From communal kitchens decked out with utensils and crockery to share, to comfy living rooms, coliving spaces are designed with socialising in mind. You can expect cosy movie or games nights, family dinners or lovely weekend brunches!
  • Green Features: Many coliving spaces in Singapore are equipped with eco-friendly amenities such as energy-efficient appliances, read more about how Casa Mia ensures this here, electric vehicles for maintenance teams (see the Casa Mia van here), eco-friendly cleaning products or even solar panelled roofs!
  • Collaborative Living: Embrace the spirit of collaboration by participating in community events, workshops, and sustainability initiatives organised by your coliving space. Whether that is a coastal clean-ups, clothes collection programs or just fun get-togethers to meet other like-minded individuals.

Green Living Hacks

  • Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: Embrace the three Rs - opt for reusable water bottles and coffee cups, say no to single-use plastics. We know that can be hard in Singapore but just remember that you don’t need a plastic cup holder for your bubbletea. Additionally there are many restaurants that nowadays are happy to put your takeaway into your own tupperware! Make recycling a habit!
  • Choose Sustainable Transport: Opt for eco-friendly modes of transport like cycling, walking, or taking public transit. Singapore's extensive MRT and bus network makes it a breeze to get around. Find out more about public transport in Singapore, here.
  • Embrace Thrifting: Say goodbye to fast fashion and hello to thrifting! Explore Singapore's vibrant second-hand shops and markets for unique finds that won't cost the earth. You can find out more about thrifting in Singapore, here.
  • Hardest one for last…try embracing a plant-based diet! We know this can be quite difficult in Singapore, given it is a food paradise here but there are plenty of vegetarian options, so you’ll never be short on delicious meat-free options!
