The world that each Facebook Group creates within them for their members is entirely separate from the Facebook platform. They provide a safe space and are a place of exclusivity. Businesses often use this platform for organic reach and building more meaningful relationships with their audiences.
However, on the other side of the spectrum, some groups dedicate their time and effort to build communities where people help each other out by providing information or raise awareness about a specific subject in some way or the other.
Here are 5 Facebook Groups in the UAE that are helping communities in their way.
1. Plant Club UAE
Indoor plants are increasingly becoming popular at a time like this. These plants create a relaxing atmosphere and make homes feel more alive. This Facebook group is for indoor plant lovers looking to exchange tips and ideas on how to take care of their plants or to showcase their collections.
Want to master the art of growing indoor plants? Join Plant Club UAE.
Alternatively, there’s a “secret group” called Plant Lover’s Dubai with over 5,000 members! Check with your green-thumbed friends in Dubai if they are part of this group and ask for an invite. Members can even find great deals from different plant dealers who can deliver the purchased plants straight to their homes.
2. Plastic Free UAE
For years single-use plastic has been plaguing our streets and oceans, and this group decided to do something about it. With more than 4,000 dedicated individuals, Plastic Free UAE is a Facebook group set up to raise awareness about the implications of single-use plastic. Members share tips, sustainable alternatives for plastics, and their own experiences of living a plastic-free life.

Initiated in 2017, the UAE Pets Adoption and Giveaway Facebook group has gained over 7,000 members. The group has a strict no selling and no buying policy and encourages only adoptions. The group’s motive is to provide loving homes to pets, help owners reallocate their pets to trustworthy sources, and report lost and strays that need help. All pets deserve the best. Here you can find information and tips on how to take care of your pets on this platform.
To help better understand what your pets could benefit from, give homes to strays, or simply look at cute cat photos, join the UAE Pets Adoption and Giveaway group.
Joining Facebook Groups means always having someplace to turn to with people with similar interests as you. And instead of building a platform to expand a business, groups like these understand how powerful a space like this can be and use it to build communities that are there to help each other out.
