UnLitter Red Dot was launched by Habitat for Humanity Singapore to bring clean and safe living environments to the home and beyond.

The clean-up programme focuses efforts on residential estates that require more help like rental flat neighbourhoods. This volunteer activity is suitable for families and children – children as young as kindergarteners accompanied by an adult are welcomed.
