To reduce the use of plastic disposables, Zero Waste SG is starting the BYO (Bring Your Own) Singapore campaign for retailers to offer incentives for customers who bring their own reusable containers, bottles or bags.
The BYO Singapore campaign would provide information, incentives and resources to encourage people to bring their own reusables and reduce plastic disposables. Under the campaign, retailers would offer incentives to customers who bring their own bags, bottles or containers. Our goal is to sign up 500 retail outlets and reduce 1,000,000 pieces of disposables in 2017.
Retailers who signed up for the BYO Singapore campaign would have to provide incentives to BYO customers; display posters, stickers and wobblers on BYO; educate staff on BYO; and track and report the amount of disposables reduced.
Zero Waste SG is a non-governmental organisation dedicated to help Singapore eliminate the concept of waste, and accelerate the shift towards zero waste and the circular economy. We aim to promote education and engagement on the 3Rs (Reduce, Reuse and Recycle) among individuals and households; increase waste minimisation and recycling among businesses and organisations; and reduce specific waste.
