There are cleanups, and there are Green Nudge cleanups.
We redefine cleanups by turning them into immersive experiences with meaningful outcomes.
Most importantly, we practice what we preach. All our equipment are reusable and we actively avoid disposables. After all, we are here to remove trash, not create more of it.
If you are looking to organise a cleanup, please consider working with us in October or later. Otherwise, you may wish to conduct your own cleanup by renting our cleanup toolkit
Nothing feels better than bonding with friends and family while doing some good in the world. In conjunction with OCBC Bank, we organized a coastal cleanup for their staff and family members at East Coast Park in July 2018. Thanks to their collective efforts, we cleared over 300kg of trash from the beach in less than 2 hours.
"The Cleanup Toolkit is pretty much everything you'd need for a cleanup, without the hassle of coming up with a checklist. They've packed just about everything such that you could do the cleanup on the very same day! The point-of-contact was also very responsive and accommodating despite me making appointments on very short notice!"

"The kit was great! Had everything you’ll need for a general beach cleanup. Items were also in good condition and the guide that came along with it was helpful :) Can’t wait to rent again for future cleanups!"
Nikki, Cleanup Toolkit Rental Customer
"The cleanup was very interesting. I learned that trash may not necessarily come from the user of the area, but instead, from neighbouring countries and also villages. I also love how I could find some sea creatures during the cleanup :)"
Raymond, Participant of a Cleanup, Oct 2020
"The toolkit has everything you need, including a mini first aid kit for scrapes and cuts. Recommended for an educational and meaningful day out."

Unfortunately we are unable to provide a specific area for you to clean as the cleanup locations vary depending on tide timings as well as monsoon seasons. However, we do provide a guide as part of the toolkit rental for you to plan your session.
As a general guide, consider areas including Sembawang Park, Pasir Ris Park and Changi Beach Park during January to June, and East Coast Park during June to September for coastal cleanups.
For inland cleanups, please consider holding them in the morning where more trash is likely to be found. Refer to this post that serves as a simple guide to inland cleanups. Here are also some tips for you to organise your own cleanup!
Simply tie up the trash bags and place them in or around the trash bins that you see around the area. These will be collected by the waste management companies to be sent for disposal. Remember to tie up the bags to prevent wildlife from rummaging through the items for food.
Yes! Let us know your potential cleanup location and we can also help to deliver them to you on the day of cleanup for added convenience.
Given the expected large amount of trash, we work with waste management companies to collect these trash once we have completed the cleanup. The trash will then be collected and sent for disposal as part of the regular waste management process. As most of the trash items are not in good condition for recycling, items collected are properly disposed through our waste management partners.
If it is expected to rain before the session, we will update you of the suggested next course of action, including delaying the starting time.
If it rains heavily during the activity, participants will be asked to take shelter at pre-identified spots. In the unfortunate event of a heavy rain, we will postpone the activity and make arrangements for the next suitable date.
As a social enterprise, there are manpower and resource costs in conducting coastal cleanups, especially in hard to reach areas where the trash situation is not as ideal. To ensure that we can continue our operations in a sustainable manner, we seek your understanding that we provide our engagements for a fee.
Yes! We have in the past been able to work with groups of less than 20 pax subject to their programme and budget.
Let's create the experience together
