What's BYO Singapore about?

In 2017, Zero Waste SG started the Bring Your Own (BYO) Singapore movement where 430 retail outlets offered incentives to customers who bring their own reusable bags, bottles or containers.

Together, we reduced over 2.5 million pieces of plastic disposables!

This year, the campaign features retailers, businesses and organisations who are Supporters of BYO Singapore. They encourage customers to bring their own reusable and/or refuse single-use disposables. Their efforts include incentives, disincentives or active customer education and engagement.

As of Sep 2020, we have 1,120 supporting outlets from 137 brands.

Find out who are our loyal supporters below and start to BYO!
