Greener Lebanon is a grass-roots, non-political campaign aimed at raising awareness of the ecological solutions already available in Lebanon, and encouraging citizens to take a more active role in using them.
It starts at home
Change needs to start at home. We, as individuals, are responsible for the waste we are producing on a daily basis. For the sake of protecting our country and health from devastating long-term damage, it is up to all of us to examine what we are doing with our waste.
We can do better
Anything that is not sorted at home and sent for recycling by a dedicated company, will end up in a landfill. Currently only 10% of waste in Lebanon is recycled. Given how small and densely populated the country is, we must do better. There are companies that are able to either collect your recycling for a small fee, or can provide you with a drop-off location in your area.
Do it for your country
We believe that all Lebanese are ready for change and are prepared to take the necessary steps to safeguard our environmental future. Here, we have provided you with the tools to do so, the rest is up to you.
