The main purpose of taking action on a local basis is to combine individual efforts to create a greater impact in the community. We feel empowered when we take action together with people who share a common goal. We build our networks and communication skills.

Return the Unnecessary Campaign

Called the "Return the Unnecessary" campaign, people collect unnecessary parts of a product and return them to the corporation that produced them with a letter requesting to reduce excessive waste.

 

This action promotes the UN SDG 12: responsible consumption and production. The market produces various kinds and numerous amounts of waste, and the producers have a responsibility of providing low- or zero-waste options for customers. Below are steps to conduct the "Return the Unnecessary" campaign:

1. Reflect the items you purchase and identify an unnecessary part of them that could be eliminated or produced using a more sustainable material (example: plastic straw attached to a beverage box).

2. Collect the part that you deem unnecessary. Choose a date of return.

3. Involve others in your action by announcing it on social media and using the word of mouth.

4. On the date of return, mail the collection with a letter requesting to take measures to reduce unnecessary waste to the corporation that produced the item.

5. Wait and monitor the actions of the corporation. They might write back a letter, announce their plans publicly, or even ask for an offline meeting.

Clean-ups

Greener is Cleaner conducts city and beach clean-ups, sometimes called logging, as a team or an individual. We also participated in numerous 'Earth and Run' virtual events and challenges since 2020, when COVID struck.
