Welcome

What's BYO Singapore about?
BYO_NoBorder_FullColour-1

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.

In 4 months, we reduced over 2.5 million pieces of plastic disposables together!

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

As of November 2021, we have 1,102 supporting outlets from 141 brands.

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