About UnLitter Red Dot: Clean and healthy living environments beyond the home
UnLitter Red Dot was created to nurture a culture and society that is more civic-minded and considerate. We believe that everyone has something to contribute and something to gain from creating neighbourhoods that are cleaner and healthier.
Littering continues to be a perennial issue year after year. Singapore may have started out as a clean garden city in the past, but increasingly it seems more accurate to call us a "cleaned" city. Despite having fines in place, our community spaces like void decks, playgrounds and carparks still seem to be littered with tissue paper, cigarette stubs and plastic bottles. We desire to see a country that takes ownership of its surroundings beyond the immediate home.
By volunteering in UnLitter, we seek to start new conversations with volunteers about what it means to care for one’s living space beyond the four corners of our homes. We want to groom a generation of compassionate citizens to step out and be the champions for change.

“Tolerate litter and you'll tolerate anything.”
— Millard Fuller, late Founder of Habitat for Humanity
UnLitter Red Dot was partly inspired by Millard Fuller, our late founder, who believed that litter represented the worst of the community. The enigmatic leader was known to take ages to get from one place to another as he would stoop to pick up litter while he was walking.
