About Campaign

ends 31 Dec 2020, 11:59 PM
The Bring Your Own(BYO) Singapore movement started in 2017 with retailers offering incentives to customers who brought their own reusable bags, bottles and/or containers.

The campaign involved 430 retail outlets and reduced over 2.5million pieces of plastic disposables in just 4 months!

Since then, it has developed into an ongoing movement that features not only F&B retailers, but also brands who charge, and organisations (corporate and NGOs) pushing for the cause.

As an extension to the BYO Singapore movement, Zero Waste SG is looking into developing a BYO-rating system for corporates across indicators that measure a company's performance on waste management policies and programmes.

This rating system aims to provide a centralised measurement, specific to sustainable waste management and to encourage company-led initiatives to address waste issues. It will also encourage companies with existing initiatives to go further with potential operational systemic changes, leading to long-term sustainable measures, benefitting people and the planet.

Your contribution will support:

1. Continuity of outreach efforts to advocate the BYO movement in Singapore

2. Insights, research findings and resources to develop a BYO rating system

3. The broader ZWSG initiatives to reduce single-use disposable and other waste in Singapore
